Skyworks makes leadership changes to drive alignment across product portfolio

Skyworks Solutions Inc of Woburn, MA, USA, which manufactures analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, has announced executive management changes that aim to increase collaboration between its front-end solutions and high-performance analog teams, driving development of next-generation solutions.

Liam Griffin, executive VP & general manager of the high-performance analog business, has been promoted to executive VP & corporate general manager. Encompassing responsibility for all business units, the newly created role 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 was senior VP of sales & marketing, gaining an in-depth knowledge of Skyworks’ product portfolio.

“Skyworks is enabling mobile connectivity across some of the world’s most exciting communications platforms, including smartphones, tablets and e-readers,” says president & CEO David J. Aldrich. “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,” he adds. “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.”

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,” Aldrich commented.
