Robert B. Mahoney
Chief Financial Officer
Robert B. Mahoney joins Alleguard as Chief Financial Officer with wide experience in manufacturing, global operations and extensive experience in both public and private company governance.
Mahoney’s career started in the semiconductor world where advanced electronics in computing and digital signal processing were being developed. Starting as a plant cost accountant, he rapidly worked his way into senior positions at Texas Instruments and National Semiconductor. He spent large amounts of time offshore restructuring and streamlining operations during the typical boom and bust cycles of the industry. Ultimately reaching the position of Corporate Controller at National Semiconductor, he was a key contributor to National’s turnaround. He then joined a leading worldwide component manufacturer, Molex Inc., in Chicago, as CFO. Eight years as CFO were then followed by five years running the operations of Molex’ $1B+ Asia Group.
Over the last 15+ years, Mahoney has held a number of senior financial executive positions in private equity. These include 4+ years with an Apollo portfolio company preparing and ultimately taking it public on the NYSE, the sale of a privately held company in the cell phone accessory space and the successful sale of a Nashville-based consumer and business media company. Most recently he was instrumental in the sale of global capital equipment manufacturer based in the US to a global Taiwanese public company.
Mahoney brings a wealth of knowledge in manufacturing, global operations, M&A and governance. Cost and Supply Chain are two particular areas of expertise, along with the products themselves.
Mahoney graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in Economics and has his MBA from the University of Michigan. He has been married to Wendi Strauch Mahoney for 42 years and has five children.
