Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:SWKS) an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, today announced executive management changes that will increase collaboration between its front-end solutions and high performance analog teams, driving development of next generation solutions and setting the stage for further market outperformance.
Liam Griffin, who previously served as executive vice president and general manager of Skyworks’ high performance analog business, has been promoted to executive vice president and corporate general manager. This newly created role encompasses responsibility for all of Skyworks’ business units and is designed to enhance product line performance, leverage organizational synergies and best capitalize on market opportunities. Prior to his leadership role in high performance analog, Griffin served as the Company’s senior vice president of sales and marketing where he gained in depth knowledge of Skyworks’ broad product portfolio.
“Skyworks is enabling mobile connectivity across some of the world’s most exciting communications platforms including smartphones, tablets and e-readers,” said David J. Aldrich, president and chief executive officer of Skyworks. “We are capturing more content per platform than ever before and rapidly expanding our footprint in complementary new vertical markets such as automotive, medical and home automation. With our customers demanding higher levels of analog and RF integration and placing greater value on total solutions, we are proactively driving alignment across all Skyworks teams to create a more integrated and rapid development cycle for our next generation products. Liam’s track record of success makes him the ideal person for this key leadership role.”
As part of the realignment, Gregory Waters will be leaving Skyworks following a transition period. “We thank Greg for his instrumental role in building Skyworks’ front-end solutions franchise and are grateful for his many contributions over the years. We wish him well in his future endeavors,” Aldrich concluded.
