Skyworks adds Iridium’s chief operations officer to board
Skyworks Solutions Inc of Irvine, CA, USA (which manufactures analog and mixed-signal semiconductors) has appointed Suzanne ‘Suzi’ E. McBride to its board of directors.
McBride is currently chief operations officer for Iridium Communications, a publicly traded operator of a global satellite communications network. Her previous experience includes a series of increasingly senior roles in technology and operations with Motorola, General Dynamics, OneWeb and Iridium.
“Suzi’s 25 years of experience in wireless technologies will be a great asset to our board of directors,” believes Skyworks’ chairman, CEO & president Liam K. Griffin.
“During this time of increasing demand for ubiquitous connectivity, Skyworks is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the expansion of 5G and other wireless technologies,” comments McBride.
McBride currently serves on the board of directors of Iridium Communications and Descartes Labs, a privately held geospatial intelligence platform. She graduated from Columbia University and Claremont McKenna College with bachelor’s degrees in industrial engineering and management engineering, respectively. She also received a master’s in business administration from the University of Tennessee.
