Aldrich has retired as the company’s chairman of the board and that Liam K. Griffin has been appointed to succeed him. Mr. Griffin will continue to serve as president and CEO of Skyworks.

Mr. Aldrich joined the company in 1995 and began serving as CEO and as a director in 2000. He was appointed chairman of the board in May 2014 and served as executive chairman from May 2016 to May 2018.

“On behalf of the entire board, I want to congratulate Dave for his distinguished career and thank him for his steadfast service to Skyworks,” said Ms. King. “Given Liam’s nearly 20-year tenure at the company serving in executive roles, including the last five years as CEO, he possesses both the experience and skills that uniquely qualify him to lead the Skyworks board. I look forward to working with him as the company’s lead independent director as we embark on achieving Skyworks’ compelling long-term vision.”

“I want to thank Dave for his unwavering commitment to Skyworks for over two decades,” said Mr. Griffin. “As a result of his strong leadership, Skyworks has established an industry-wide reputation for innovation, creativity and tenacity and built a track record of delivering best-in-class connectivity solutions. His vision and counsel have been invaluable to the company, and more personally, I have benefited greatly from Dave’s advice, guidance and friendship.”

“It has been an honor to watch Skyworks grow and flourish over the years, and a true privilege to work alongside the creative and driven individuals that I’m proud to call my colleagues,” said Mr. Aldrich. “I have the utmost confidence in Liam, the board and the Skyworks team, and believe that the company’s best days are ahead.”
