Peregrine Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: PSMI), a fabless provider of high-performance radio frequency integrated circuits (RFICs), today announced that its Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Jay Biskupski, was named San Diego’s “CFO of the Year,” in the category of public company, an honor presented annually by the San Diego Business Journal. 45 San Diego CFOs were nominated for the award, in the categories of Education, Government, Nonprofit Organizations, and Public Company. The winners were announced at an exclusive reception and awards program on March 14, and published in the March 18 issue of the Business Journal.
“We are grateful to the Business Journal for the opportunity to be recognized alongside San Diego’s most exceptional business leaders, first for the ‘Most Admired CEO’ award last December and now for the ‘CFO of the Year’ award,” said Biskupski. “None of the accomplishments Peregrine has achieved in recent years—including the shipment of our billionth device in 2011 and the completion of our Initial Public Offering (IPO) in 2012—would have been possible without a dedicated, hard-working team to make it happen. I am honored to accept this award on behalf of the entire company.”
“This is our seventh consecutive year recognizing San Diego’s best and brightest CFOs,” said Randy Frisch, President and Publisher of the San Diego Business Journal. “These individuals are tasked with being the gatekeepers of their companies’ financial business while leading its growth and contributing to economic development for the region. We’re pleased to honor these recipients with this awards program.”
