In all, Gutmann has more than 30 years of finance experience, ON Semi said. Most recently he has served as vice president responsible for corporate-wide financial planning, analysis and corporate strategy.

"We have a strong culture of leadership development within ON Semiconductor and are proud and excited to promote a strong leader from within our ranks," said Keith Jackson, ON Semi's president and CEO, in a statement.
