SAN FRANCISCO—Ken Joyce, president and CEO of semiconductor test and packaging house Amkor Technology Inc., will retire at the end of 2013 after more than 15 years with the company, Amkor said Tuesday (Nov. 6).
Amkor (Chandler, Ariz.) said its board of directors has created a search committee to indentify Joyce's replacement. An executive recruiting firm has been retained to conduct an outside search and also to assist with the assessment of internal candidates, Amkor said.
"It has been a great privilege to lead this organization, filled with talented and dedicated people," Joyce said through a statement. "I am proud of what we have accomplished together during my tenure and I am confident that Amkor will achieve continued success for years to come. I look forward to working with the board on the transition to new leadership."
