@Junko: one thing that is a constant at GloFo in a relatively longer time span is that of its CEO Ajit Manocha and he seems to have better longevity among execs at that company!

Thanks, sranje.

I'd caution that it's always not so easy to connect a company's upswing directly with that company's executive's management talent. 

Although we all know the poor management does lead any company to a downhill slope.

For a person with low integrity. the business world has treated Mike Noonen pretty well - going up everytime. I knew him since 8x8. He couldn't even hornor his words just one week old.

Moore's Law keep on living...

Well, I don't know why Mike Noonen resigned his position, but I am going to respect his decision and his comments.  One thing for sure that caught my eyes about his comments is that he said:  "cost-effectiveness back to Moore's Law."   A few months ago we were talking about Moore's Law within another article and some people said it was dead and that Charles you don't know what you are talking aobut.  Well, if Moore's Law is dead, it sure continue to keep on living.  Thanks for the comment Mke Noonen.

Dear Junko, when GF acquired Chartered it also acquired two of the industry best Sales and Marketing executives.  Instead of recognizing that, GF and ATIC brought a parade of, looking at their record, somewhat questionable resources.

As Steve Jobs said -- tolerate only "A" players... Hopefully GF is on a strong rebound -- its technology and operational teams are certainly world-class.

BTW, Mike Rekuc promptly left and now runs the Global Sales and Marketing as one of SMIC's top executives. The last time I checked -- SMIC had eight or more quarters of growth and profitability....

@sranje, very interesting. Thanks for sharing the story about Mr. Meyer. I haven't had an opportunity to meet with him and I did not know that he, too, recently left GloFo...it feels like there is more to the story.

Another superb Marketing executive left just before Noonen

I know little about Mike Noonen and his capabilities.   However, another outstanding Marketing executive left GF about 1-2 months earlier -- Kevin Meyer. 

For several years I was astonished watching a promenade of GF's marketing and sales executives -- puzzled by their selection -- while there was a proven and among industry's very best resources already in the company.  Very strange and disappointing since the industry needs a successful GF
