A 17-year NETGEAR veteran, Henry started his career as the Sr Product Line Manager for wireless router products where he launched NETGEAR’s RangeMax™ product line, which propelled the company into the premium WiFi market. Over the course of his career Henry has expanded the WiFi category and fostered the company’s industry leadership. He is responsible for the launch of several of NETGEAR’s flagship product lines including Nighthawk™, Orbi™, and Nighthawk Pro Gaming.
Currently, Henry leads the product marketing, product management, and engineering organizations for NETGEAR and is spearheading the transformation of the Connected Home business from hardware-based products to a subscription-service business with value-added services such as NETGEAR Armor™ and Smart Parental Controls. He joined NETGEAR’s board of directors in July of this year.
