Infleqtion, one of the world’s leading quantum information companies, recently announced the appointment of Matthew Kinsella as its new Chief Executive Officer. Kinsella replaces Scott Faris, who has stepped down to focus on quantum industry policy and investments in national security and defense. Kinsella joins from Maverick Ventures, where he served as a partner and led investments across the technology industry, including Maverick’s investment in Infleqtion. Kinsella has served on Infleqtion’s Board of Directors since 2018.

“We are thrilled to welcome Matt as the new CEO of Infleqtion during such an important time for the company and the industry,” said Cathy Lego, Chair of Infleqtion’s Board. “Matt’s extensive understanding of Infleqtion, coupled with his demonstrated success in guiding technology companies through product development, revenue expansion, and successful growth initiatives, will be invaluable as we embark on scaling the business and expanding into high-growth markets.”

“Infleqtion is well positioned to lead as quantum technology shifts out of the lab and into the commercial realm. I’m honored to guide the company through our next pivotal phase,” said Matt Kinsella, Infleqtion CEO. “With our robust foundation, exceptional team, and dedication to scalable solutions, we are ready to seize the immense potential of quantum technology to revolutionize industries and create a brighter future for all. Our focus on clocks, RF, compute, and quantum-enabled AI software presents growing and near-term revenue opportunities. We are committed to developing and delivering cutting-edge solutions to our customers.”

“We express our sincere gratitude to Scott for his exceptional leadership over the past two and a half years,” continued Lego. “Under his guidance, the company successfully navigated a Series B funding round, expanded important technology programs in timing, sensing, and information processing, ventured into new markets, and executed several critical acquisitions. As we enter the next phase of the company’s development and growth, we are exceptionally well positioned to capitalize on these achievements.”
