Monolithic microwave integrated circuit developer Custom MMIC of Chelmsford, MA, USA has hired Thomas M. Rosa as senior VP & chief financial officer, effective 1 June. Rosa, who has been consulting with the firm for 14 months prior to his hiring, will lead all aspects of finance and accounting operations.

Rosa has more than 30 years of progressively more responsible financial management experience at public and private companies, with significant experience at companies focused on materials and material-based solutions. His primary strengths lie in capital markets, investor/analyst relations, SEC filings, mergers and acquisitions, budgeting and long-range planning, manufacturing cost accounting, and government accounting.

Since 2014, Rosa has been the consulting CFO at several small, private companies undergoing significant growth, working in partnership with company senior management to improve operations, sales, backlog, profitability, and cash flow.

From 2008-2013, Rosa was CFO & senior VP of Bruker Energy & Supercon Technologies, a subsidiary of Bruker Corp, where he oversaw an increase in annual sales from $39m to $136m in five years through organic growth and a successful acquisition in Germany. Prior to 2008, he worked for 14 years at American Superconductor Corp (AMSC), rising to CFO and helping to grow AMSC from $3m in annual revenues to about $100m. Rosa also served in financial management positions at Lockheed, Wang Labs and Prime Computer. Collectively, he has helped various companies raise over $350m in financing. He received his MBA in finance from Northeastern University in 1982.

“We’re delighted to have Tom to join us in a lead management role as we continue to expand our business,” says Custom MMIC’s president Paul Blount. “The time is right to bring on a CFO to support the continuing development and maturation of our company,” he adds. “Tom has been supporting us for over a year now as our consulting CFO. He has been a CFO at several Massachusetts-based companies, and his experience in fast-growth business environments suits us perfectly, as we continue along our rapid growth curve.”
