Richard Zahner, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant general, has been named an advisory board member of the government business unit at Santa Clara, California-based processor developer Tachyum.

He gained military intelligence leadership experience and served in heavy ground, airborne and special missions during his 36-year career, Tachyum said Tuesday.

Zahner previously worked as director of signals intelligence at the National Security Agency and as deputy undersecretary for intelligence warfighting support at the Department of Defense.

Following his retirement in 2012, he held a DoD adviser role focused on cyber policy and intelligence matters as well as participated in NSA advisory board panels and Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency-backed innovation programs.

“To ensure that we are properly addressing the demanding needs of defense and intelligence organizations, we need people who have served on the front lines, and who have senior command and policy experience to help us tailor our solutions to best serve these institutions," said Radoslav Danilak, founder and CEO of Tachyum.

Danilak added that Zahner's experience will provide the company insight into how it can offer technology to support government customers.

Tachyum launched its government segment in September to offer agencies the company-built Prodigy universal processor for high-performance computing and artificial intelligence systems.
