TriQuint wins TechAmerica Oregon’s System/Hardware ‘Company of the Year’ award

As part of the Technology Awards program of TechAmerica Oregon (formerly the Oregon Council of AeA) at the Portland Art Museum late last week, RF product maker and foundry services provider TriQuint Semiconductor Inc of Hillsboro, OR, USA received the 2009 System/Hardware ‘Company of the Year’ award in recognition of its accomplishments, leadership and commitment to the community and industry. 

“A thriving high-tech community and the jobs it creates contribute to the overall health of our economy,” said Phillip J. Bond, president of Washington DC-based TechAmerica, which was formed last year through the merger of AeA (formerly the American Electronics Association), the Cyber Security Industry Alliance (CSIA), the Information Technology Association of America (ITAA) and the Government Electronics & Information Technology Association (GEIA). “Oregon’s high-technology industry is dynamic, diverse and growing... TriQuint is a key player in the region’s technology industry. We all benefit from their focus on innovation to advance global communications,” Bond added.  

“We are honored to have been chosen for this award amongst so many respected and successful local companies,” said TriQuint’s president & CEO Ralph Quinsey as he accepted the award on behalf of the firm. 

Quinsey was also formally recognized as TechAmerica Oregon’s 2009 Technology Executive of the Year (announced in February), on the basis of his leadership shown in TriQuint, the greater Oregon community and the technology industry. Quinsey was chosen by a collection of the program’s previous Technology Executive of the Year and Lifetime Achievement Award recipients who make up the selection committee.
