OneSpin Solutions GmbH, an electronic design automation (EDA) company that provides breakthrough, award-winning formal verification solutions, today announced the appointment of Charles (Charlie) Cump as vice president of worldwide sales. With more than 30 years of experience in EDA and fabless semiconductor companies - both as a customer and as a vendor - Cump brings to OneSpin extensive knowledge of the market and customer needs. His demonstrated expertise includes building strong international sales and support organizations to take care of customer needs worldwide, and driving innovative products to prosperous sustained growth. Based in Silicon Valley, Cump will lead global sales and field application engineering activities.
Prior to joining OneSpin, Cump was vice president of worldwide sales at video compression semiconductor company Mobilygen Corp. Previously, he co-founded Chameleon Systems and served as vice president of sales. He also held executive sales positions at semiconductor companies AMCC, Vitesse, ZyMOS and Micro Power Systems. Earlier, he was vice president of sales and marketing at ArcSys, which became Avant!, and he led the sales effort from pre-beta through successful IPO at IKOS Systems. He also co-founded his own EDA company, Sunrise Test Systems, which became the industry's leading ATPG (Automatic Test Program Generation) vendor for partial scan before being acquired by Viewlogic and, ultimately, Synopsys.
"Given the depth and breadth of Charlie's sales experience and his outstanding track record, welcoming him to OneSpin is the next logical step to help drive our strategic growth and global expansion, said Peter Feist, president and CEO of OneSpin. "Having been an EDA customer, he perfectly understands the needs and challenges of the IP vendors, SoC and FPGA design customers we serve. OneSpin and our customers worldwide surely will benefit from Charlie's knowledge, pragmatism and ˜hands-on' approach.
"I'm pleased to join the team that set the quality standard in formal verification, said Cump. "OneSpin is the only company in the EDA industry to enable error-free functional sign-off of complex modules and IP and, consequently, risk-free IP use. This is a key business enabler for IP vendors and IP buyers that significantly reduces time-to-market and respin costs. It's exciting to see the rapidly growing demand for this incomparable verification technology, and I'm eager to help drive its adoption in a broad market.
