Mike Bellon is an accomplished systems engineer, engineering leader and business executive. He has worked for nearly 20 years with Fortune 500 leading tech companies in the Silicon Valley area, where he has taken multiple novel engineering products to market, directly enabling sales of over $30 million.
Mike’s inventions include both an automation software trade secret that he has developed into a full Internet of Things (IoT) software stack; and an issued U.S. Patent for a data analysis flow engine methodology that was used to develop defect analysis software, which enabled greater sales volume of the company’s flagship defect inspection products.
Mike’s sub-specialties and areas of focus include: embedded software, electrical engineering and automation. As an executive, Mike has proven to have a keen mind on how to cut costs and run an extremely efficient engineering department, which adds to the company’s top-line revenue and decreases capital needed to get to market. For example, while working for KLA Tencor in 2009, Mike facilitated the adoption of systems in a new product offering that enabled a reduction of $3 million/year in that system’s material cost – a 15% reduction in cost of goods.
Since starting his own consulting company, Mike has been providing software development services to several prominent companies, including Apple. He additionally met the Founder/CEO of Juno Biomedical in early 2015 and joined the team as a co-founder and Director of Engineering quickly thereafter. He is passionate about wanting to help people and feels strongly that Juno Biomedical will continue to pioneer the field of regenerative medicine and lead the field of cell electrotaxis.
He has since been promoted to Chief Technology Officer and continues to grow and lead Juno Biomedical’s engineering department, already taking their first product, CELLTech™, through the critical design and development portions of the development cycle. His work with Juno Biomedical has gained much recognition from leaders in the neuromodulation and medical device fields.
Mike completed his B.S. and M.S. in Electrical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame. After graduation, he was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the United States Army, where he served as an Intelligence Officer, holding positions such as platoon leader and company command.
