Tony Fadell, known as the developer of the Nest thermostat, has joined ARM’s board of directors as the company prepares for a public listing of shares.
Fadell is the principal of the Build Collective, an investment and advisory firm that coaches technology-based startups. Fadell is the founder and former CEO of Nest, an IoT pioneer. He was also led the team that created the first 18 generations of the iPod and the first three generations of the iPhone.
“Tony’s deep technical and product experience will be a great asset to myself and a fantastic complement to the board,” said Rene Haas, CEO of ARM, in a statement.
Fadell added: “After working with ARM technology for 30-plus years, I’m thrilled to join its board. It is silicon’s lingua franca, powering hundreds of billions of products. I couldn’t have built the iPod, iPhone, or Nest without Arm, and will help ensure every future builder is enabled by this essential company.”
