Mike Jadon, Board Director, CEO & Co-Founder
Mike has twenty years of experience in memory storage and multi-processing. Prior to co-founding Radian, he was a principal and G.M. at Micro Memory where he led the transformation of the business into an IP oriented company that developed clustered multi-processing solutions and advanced storage devices. This included creating the Umem line which became the industry’s leading PCI/PCIe NVRAM storage device for OEMs. The transformation resulted in a significant technology portfolio that doubled Micro Memory’s revenues and led to an acquisition by partner VMEtro, where he continued in his position as G.M. and took on the additional role of U.S. CTO.
