Nextreme appoints CEO

Nextreme Thermal Solutions of Durham, NC, USA, which designs and manufactures microscale thin-film thermal and power management products, says that John Goehrke has joined the company as CEO.

Goehrke has over 25 years of sales, marketing, and general management experience, most recently as CEO of siXis Inc, pioneers of silicon circuit board (SiCB) technology, and chief operating officer of Luna Innovations, where he was part of the executive management team that completed an initial public offering in June 2006. Previously, he was CEO of Luna Technologies, a VC-funded start-up, which led to profitability and a successful exit in the form of an acquisition. Before joining Luna, Goehrke was general manager of Acterna’s Access Division, based in Germantown, MD, USA, and the Fiber Optics Division based in St Etienne, France.

Goehrke began his career in sales & marketing for VC-funded start-up American Photonics, which was sold to Siecor Fiberlan. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Connecticut and an MBA from the University of Pittsburgh.

“John’s track record in high-tech marketing, sales, and operations makes him well suited to lead the company,” believes Rich Harris, chairman of Nextreme’s board of directors and managing general partner at Redshift Ventures.
