RANCHO SANTA FE — Rancho Santa Fe resident Patrick Henry was named the 2009 Most Admired Chief Executive Officer in the public small company category by the San Diego Business Journal during a VIP reception Nov. 18.
Since 2003, Henry has been at the helm of Entropic as chief executive officer. Entropic Communications, Inc. is a provider of silicon and software solutions to enable connected home entertainment. Henry led the company as it emerged from a venture capital backed start-up company, experienced significant growth both organically and via acquisitions, became a market leader in two complementary connected home entertainment technologies and evolved into a successful public company on the road to sustained growth and profitability. The publication’s judging committee credited Henry’s ability to lead the company through the many challenges of this metamorphosis with steadfast leadership skills, enthusiasm and determination.
“I am truly honored and humbled to receive this award,” Henry said. It is really the entire Entropic team, our customers, suppliers, and investors that have made Entropic’s success to-date a reality. Innovation has been a cornerstone of our success and will be a critical element of our future. This is a very exciting time for Entropic as we enter a new phase of growth with our silicon solutions in our target markets. I thank the San Diego Business Journal and all the sponsors for this recognition.”
“The San Diego Business Journal is proud to honor Patrick Henry as one of San Diego’s Most Admired CEO’s,” said Armon Mills, president and publisher at the San Diego Business Journal. “Under incredibly challenging market conditions, Patrick shepherded the company from an early stage startup to a thriving, publicly traded company that continues to build on its mission as the leader in enabling connected home entertainment solutions.”
