Xperi Holding Corp., corporate owner of TiVo, has appointed Keith Jones CFO of Adeia, its intellectual property business.
Jones will join the company Aug. 8 and will become CFO of Adeia effective upon the separation of the company’s IP and product businesses later this fall.
Jones joins Adeia from Rambus, a technology company that develops and licenses chip interface technologies, where he served in several key finance roles since 2018, and most recently as Interim CFO.
“Keith is a proven leader and a great addition to the executive team at Adeia” Paul Davis, president of Adeia, said in a statement. “As Adeia becomes a separate publicly traded company, Keith’s expertise in the IP licensing businesses and his public company experience are the perfect strategic fit for our organization.”
“As Adeia nears separation, I am honored to lead as CFO and am particularly excited to work with the talented team at Adeia to continue to drive its IP leadership position in the market,” Jones said in a statement.
Jones joined Rambus in 2018 and served as the chief accounting officer, corporate controller and VP of finance before becoming interim CFO. Prior to joining Rambus, he served as the worldwide corporate controller, VP of finance and the principal accounting officer at ShoreTel before its acquisition by Mitel Networks Corp. Before that, he served as the CFO and VP of finance at PDF Solutions. Jones has also held senior leadership roles at other technology companies, including Interwoven and e-Time Capital. He began his career at Deloitte.
