SAN JOSE, Calif. -- IP provider Patriot Scientific Inc. has named chip industry veteran Rick Goerner as the company's interim president and CEO.
He succeeds Jim Turley, who resigned his position as the company's president and CEO effective Feb. 28. Turley also resigned from the company's board.
''It is with mixed feelings that I announce my resignation from Patriot Scientific,'' said Turley in a statement. ''I leave the company in a strong financial and strategic position, but I haven't been able to accomplish many of the things I'd set out to do. I'm optimistic that Patriot will flourish and that its shareholders will be rewarded.''
