Since September 1, Geert de Peuter is CEO of Caeleste. One of his first tasks as new CEO of Caeleste is to strengthen the organization after the fast growth during the last years and to bring the internal organization to support the present size and the future growth of the company. Geert will also work on the further growth of the company, the growth of the external network and on a further diversification of the image sensor portfolio and associated activities.
Geert obtained a master’s degree in electronic engineering and pursued his passion for micro-electronics by joining Alcatel’s ASIC design team. There his personal technical contributions and leadership in ASIC solutions for fiber and copper access products as well as network processors were a stepping stone in a series of successful engineering projects that led to a leading market position in broadband access.
Geert also nurtured the start-up and fortification of the Alcatel-Lucent DSL Physical Layer team (i.e. twisted-pair broadband access technology), which evolved into the company and industry reference for broadband access product (r)evolutions. The last five years, Geert managed the ASIC/hardware research team at Nokia Bell Labs, where he focused on groundbreaking, industry-relevant research for fixed and converged broadband innovations.
