Tortuga Logic has selected Andreas Kuehlmann as the Executive Chair and Interim Chief Executive Officer as they are expanding their leadership team.

FREMONT, CA: Tortuga Logic, Inc. is a cybersecurity company that specializes in hardware security. The company has appointed Andreas Kuehlmann as the Executive Chair and Interim Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately. The former CEO and Co-founder Jason Oberg will take the position of Chief Technology Officer to focus on improving the company strategy and sustain its increasing growth.

Tortuga Logic is experiencing an extraordinary demand for its hardware security products and services. The vulnerabilities related to Spectre and Meltdown can confirm that commodity semiconductor chips that are used universally might have fundamental security faults. Since then, the amount of exposed hardware vulnerabilities has increased rapidly, which has developed the requirement for more advanced solutions. Mr. Kuehlmann can add his immense experience in the security and semiconductor sector that will help the company’s next stage of evolution.

“I am delighted to welcome Andreas as our new CEO. He is a proven leader who has excelled at strategic leadership and execution and is well-positioned to lead Tortuga Logic. The Board and I are confident that he is the right person to continue building the company’s momentum,” said John East, Tortuga Logic Board Director. “As a seasoned leader with significant experience in both cybersecurity and semiconductor, he operates efficiently at scale and delivers value to employees, customers, investors, and shareholders. We are lucky to have him.”

“Hardware security is an immensely complex problem spanning semiconductor design, manufacturing, and supply chain. The importance of using best-in-class products and design methodologies for building secure chips cannot be overstated,” said Jason Oberg. “Andreas’ experience in building a market-leading software security business provides invaluable guidance and leadership to Tortuga Logic for our next stage of growth. I look forward to working closely with him to plan and execute our disruptive technology and product strategy.”
