Gregg, congrats. Be aware that Freescale is freely falling without any scaling. The problem is simply that Freescale is in a business where they need volume to make money in a commoditized sector.Greg will have to shift them to profitable areas or find ways to boost volume. Otherwise, nothing changes.

Congratulations to Gregg Lowe. I am sure his experience as analog business at Texas Instruments will help him to drive the company toward success.

Not sure why they would pick an analog guy, but he did run the microcontroller part of TI for a while.

The welcomed surprise here is that Freescale has acquired a well versed seasoned leader from a significant competitor. As I worked within Gregg’s organization during my time with TI, I couldn’t be more pleased. Gregg had a hand at building TI's Medical initiative early on. With his expertise in automotive, sales, analog, and yes – the healthcare segment, having Gregg at the helm is very welcomed here. I’m looking forward to his imprint as a result of expected and certain change. This will be fun and profitable! Let the new CEO reign in -

Lost talent for TI, I am not sure if Lowe can manage to lead the Freescale team, they are not easy to integrate, however I wish him all the best, he is one of the best in the industry

@Selinz, do you think success is as simple as that equation ? If that is the case everyone will start hiring TI guy.

@daleste, is it a possibility that Freescale is planning to venture big time into analog business ?
