Would you give this man $2.7 billion?
Congratulations to Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon Corporation, on the successful sale of Echelon to Adesto Technologies (NASDAQ: IOTS) on June 29, 2018, an important Internet of Things (IoT) player, at an almost 100% increase over Friday's stock price. Ron Sege was 3Com's 7th and last CEO and sold 3Com to HP for $2.7 billion in 2009. That story is covered in our upcoming book (did you know that Marius Haas, President of Dell EMC today, played a critical part in that event?) Stay tuned! (Ron also rocks a mean sarong - taken in 1996 with Nachman Shelef in Bali Indonesia 3Com Asia Partners Conference.)
