Moov Technologies, a marketplace and asset management platform for pre-owned semiconductor manufacturing equipment, promoted Nicholas Griffith to the newly created role of chief technology officer on Thursday.
Griffith has been with Arizona-based Moov since 2020. He previously served as the company’s head of technology and led the product and engineering teams.
According to a statement from Moov, Griffith spearheaded the creation of Moov’s backend data systems, enabling unified marketplace insights, forecasting and equipment matching. As CTO, he will be responsible for leading the technology and product organizations and overseeing all research and development.
Prior to joining Moov, Griffith was the co-founder and VP of engineering at 36 Labs, which was acquired by MUNDOmedia in 2016. Griffith served as MUNDOmedia’s CTO until 2019, according to his LinkedIn. He has also served as an angel investor and advisor at OpenInstall, Bright.com and Truebill.com, according to the statement from Moov.
“Since joining Moov, Nick has been an integral part of our leadership team, driving the charge to make Moov a product-led technology company — the only technology company operating in the used semiconductor equipment space,” Steven Zhou, co-founder and CEO of Moov, said in a statement. “With Nick at the helm, we’ve grown to be more than the world's largest marketplace for used equipment — we provide a truly end-to-end technology solution for buying, selling and managing pre-owned semiconductor manufacturing tooling.”
Moov was co-founded in 2017 by Zhou and Maxam Yeung. The company opened an Austin office last year.
