SAN JOSE, Calif. - Tessera Technologies Inc. has named Bob Roohparvar as its new president of its struggling Imaging & Optics unit.
Roohparvar will report to Tessera’s Chairman, President and CEO Henry R. Nothhaft, and will be responsible for the company’s Imaging & Optics segment, including strategy and operations.
Roohparvar joins Tessera from Flextronics, which he joined in 2006 as president of FlexPower.
