Sure, I understand why many people would take a stint like that...but saying that he actually made a siginifant impact in 18 month is overstated...even Steve Jobs probably could not make an impact in such a short period of time...markets forces, customers, products already in deevlopment, thousands of people already working in GF likely had much larger impact than one short lived CEO

Emirate vs Private vs Publicly Held

I know Mike, and he's a smart, but let's say he's your average 'turnaround guy'. So, he goes from the classic publicly held or private equity world to an Emirate-owned entity. And has a very short stint. Does that say more about Mike, or about what it means to work for an Emirate?

One can hire a bunch of people and put in some systems but it takes three years to know if the all the people and markwts work well together.

 

Products and sales results can't be reliably judged for 3-7 years. No one wants to hear that but it's the way things work out.

Nice job bringing this one home Junko and thatnks for the barely deserved contributing credit. The gut check with IC Insights was perfect.

It feels like there are more shoes to fall in this story, doesn't it?

I agree.  That wasn't enough time to make much of a difference.  Maybe his next challenge came sooner than GloFo wanted.

Perhaps a different kind of Moore's law at works.

Perhaps Junko but I remain sceptical...I worked for number of CEOs in my life and have difficulty seeing anyone making a dramatic difference in 18 months in an organization of certain complexity that has lots of inertia...perhaps some GloFo employees want to chime in

I guess in any career -- especially when you are moving upward, the timing is everything. Noonen, in my opinion, did a great job at NXP when it came to explaining the company's vision for high-performance mixed signal strategy; I would like to know more about what exactly were the "turnaround" moments for Glofo in the last two years...

Joined in 2012, left in 2013...hard to belive you could had much impact in such a short time...it takes me that long to design a CMOS chip
