To start our 2014-15 season of Business Lectures we’re pleased to welcome Joep van Beurden, CEO of CSR - a Cambridge-based global leader in wireless technology.

CSR is a global leader in wireless technology, shaping products that are enhancing lives and changing the way we live. It was founded in 1999, in Cambridge to develop an RF (Radio Frequency) radio, which people said could not be done, but CSR engineers did it anyway. They dominated the market but needed to strengthen the focus on audio, so they increased investment in R&D and set up a Wi-Fi team. Over the next few years they opened new offices in the US and Asia and launched their first Bluetooth chips. In 2004 CSR listed on the London Stock Exchange and joined the FTSE 250 , continuing to expand in Europe and China.

CSR is a technology pioneer, developing silicon, software and services for the consumer electronics market. The company has a specific focus on connectivity, voice and music, Bluetooth® Smart, document imaging, automotive infotainment and location technologies.
