Holmes is a senior executive with over 35 years of hands-on experience managing and developing companies ranging in size from $400,000 to $4 billion, spanning a broad range of technologies. Previously, Holmes was chairman and CEO of Resonant Inc., a Nasdaq-listed provider of radio frequency filter solutions for the mobile industry, where he led the company from the early stages of development to a successful sale to Murata Manufacturing Company, Ltd., an established global leader in the electronics industry. Prior to joining Resonant, Holmes served in senior executive roles at Tigo Energy, Energous, SolarBridge Technologies, Agere Systems (formerly Lucent MicroElectronics), Ortel Corp (acquired by Lucent MicroElectronics), Level One Communications and Symmetricom. Holmes holds a bachelor's degree in Business Administration from the University of Puget Sound and a diploma in International Business from Nyenrode Business University, Netherlands.
“We are privileged to have secured a tenured executive of George’s caliber, bringing the public markets and business experience needed as we work towards a planned Nasdaq uplisting,” said Massey. “George will prove instrumental in leading the SIRC family of companies to the next level, forming a truly national organization with the ability to scale and drive value creation.
“It has truly been an honor to serve as CEO of SIRC for the past several years – I want to offer my sincere thanks to our employees whose hard work and dedication have allowed us to build upon our humble beginnings and achieve incredible feats."
He added that he is confident Holmes is the executive best suited to guide SIRC company into the future and looks forward to working together with him to ensure a smooth transition.
“I am excited to have the opportunity to lead SIRC into the next phase of its maturation as a public company, building upon the recent successes and the strong foundation developed under Dave’s leadership," said Holmes. "As we leverage the recent transition to a fully reporting company, my first priority is to build an executive team and recruit a board of directors with the necessary skills to improve our internal controls and reporting functions, while continuing to drive operational execution and revenue growth that is intended to lead to a successful Nasdaq uplisting in 2023. I look forward to working closely with Dave, the board and the entire team at SIRC as we seek to deliver long-term, sustainable value creation for our shareholders.”
