John McAdoo Joins Keyssa as Chief Financial Officer


Campbell, Calif.  – September 13, 2016 – Keyssa®, a leader in high-speed, contactless connectivity, today announced the appointment of John McAdoo as chief financial officer. McAdoo joins Keyssa from Euclid, Inc., a location analytics firm, where he served as CFO.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome John to Keyssa where he will undoubtedly make an immediate impact as we move into full commercialization of our technology,” said Eric Almgren, CEO of Keyssa. “I am particularly impressed with John’s ability to combine financial management with operational leadership, exactly the skills we need as Kiss Connectivity continues to be adopted by our customers.”

Experienced at driving growth at both public and venture-backed businesses, McAdoo most recently served as CFO at two venture-backed companies where he played major roles in helping to scale operations and support fundraising efforts.

“It’s rare to join a company that truly has the opportunity to disrupt a major market segment,” said McAdoo. “Keyssa’s technology has the potential to be a ubiquitous high-speed interface in any device that transmits data and video. I’m looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and getting started.”
