LONDON NXP Semiconductors has a new general manager for its identification business unit, with Rudy Stroh taking over with immediate effect from Christophe Duverne.
Stroh has worked for numerous companies, including Siemens AG where he held multiple management positions. He then became Senior Vice President and General Manager at Infineon Technologies, responsible for the Network and Computer Storage, Data Communications, and Consumer divisions.
He also led multiple start-ups in Wireless, Storage Networking and advanced nano materials companies before joining Agere Systems as EVP of the Storage Business Unit. After the Agere/LSI merger, Stroh's expanded responsibilities at LSI Corporation included Hard Disk Drive SoCs, preamps, motor controllers as well as SSD controllers.
"We have recruited a new leader and created a dedicated structure for our identification business as we believe it has significant potential for further growth in the mid and long term," commented NXP Chief Executive Officer Rick Clemmer.
Clemmer said an announcement about Duverne's next assignment "will follow in due course."
He added it is due to Duverne and his team "that we enjoy leadership in areas including RFID, NFC, ePassports and contactless ticketing."
Stroh will report directly to Rick Clemmer, who continues to manage the automotive business on an interim basis.
