A senior business executive experienced in general management, finance, strategic planning, sales, and engineering, Roger O’Brien has held officer-level positions in start-up companies as well as market-leading Fortune 500 organizations. He founded O’Brien Associates in 2000 and as President has since served dozens of clients.

 

His prior experience includes more than 40 years in corporate executive management as well as entrepreneurial ventures. In the late 90s, he served as Chief Operating Officer for Ultralife Batteries Inc., helping to turn around the publicly held manufacturer of advanced battery power sources. Prior to that, he was Chief Executive Officer as well as a major shareholder of Holotek Ltd., a high technology company which designed, developed, manufactured and sold laser imaging systems worldwide. Along with the company’s founder and outside board of directors, O’Brien represented approximately 120 shareholders of Holotek and successfully negotiated the sale of the company to an OEM customer.

Previously, Roger was Corporate Vice President of Sun Microsystems, Inc., helping to grow the company from $500 million to more than $2 billion in sales during a 24-month period. That experience led him to form the first incarnation of his consulting business, RDO Associates, providing advisory and implementation services to a variety of high technology companies in the Silicon Valley.
