He joined Cypress 9 years ago from Continental Automotive Systems, a big Tier One company, as I noted in the story. He seems to have played a key role in expanding Cypress visibility in the automotive market.

What?

I admit I know knowing about this new CEO, but it does sound odd that someone who knew "nothing about semiconductors" nine years ago is now the CEO of Cypress.  If I were a long time employee of Cypress, I would have a hard time swallowing that.  What experience does he have that justifies his meteoric rise?   Was there a specific project he led that was phenomenomally successful?

A missed opportunity

Cypress had a great opportunity to bring in new blood and leadership, but it was missed.  The company has been bleeding talent as the caustic culture takes it toll.  This promotion from within will not be much of a change at all.
