Noel Lindsay, Founder, Chairman & CEO

Noel Lindsay founded Sleep Science Partners, Inc. (SSPI) in 2005 and is the Chairman and CEO. Noel's personal battle with chronic snoring led him to seek out a noninvasive treatment that would allow him to regain quality sleep. After much searching, he became acquainted with the inventors of PureSleep, Dr. Douglas Fenton, DDS, and the late Dr. Bernard "Buzz" Kramer, MD, an ear, nose and throat specialist. Noel now sleeps well every night with the assistance of his PureSleep device. His entrepreneurial passion led him to launch SSPI which licensed the PureSleep device to make it more affordable and widely available to other chronic snorers seeking relief.

Prior to founding SSPI, Noel worked as a consultant and venture capitalist. He worked in investment banking for Hambrecht & Quist (now part of JPMorgan), Deutsche Bank, and Thematic Investments where he served as President. A serial entrepreneur, Noel helped start Crescendo Communications, which invented the key technology used in the "Fast Ethernet" standard and was an early developer of LAN switching systems - both now universally deployed. When Crescendo was acquired by Cisco Systems in 1993, Noel evangelized the new products throughout Cisco's worldwide sales and marketing organizations. Noel also did product marketing for Sun Microsystems, designed communications systems at Hughes Aircraft and flight guidance and control systems at McDonnell Douglas.

Noel has a B.S. in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and an M.B.A. from Carnegie Mellon University's Tepper School of Business.
