Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing has announced several changes in its senior management. The changes, aimed to strengthen the company's manufacturing and sales operations, are effective immediately.

"With the growth and evolution of the semiconductor and foundry markets, we recognise that our customers need tighter integration between technology, customer engagement and manufacturing in order to better address their time-to-market demands," said Chia Song Hwee, Chartered president & CEO.

Embracing this vision, former senior VP of fab operations Kay Chai Ang now assumes the duties for senior VP of worldwide sales and marketing. He will oversee all customer service, sales and marketing and strategic alliances activities of the company.

Meanwhile, Simon Yang takes the post of senior VP of fab operations, aside from his current role as chief technology officer (CTO). He will be responsible for the company's manufacturing strategy and operational excellence across all fabs, while continuing his current duties as CTO. Both Ang and Yang will continue to report directly to the company's president & CEO.

After spending nearly four years in Singapore overseeing the execution of the company's customer strategy during a critical phase in Chartered's transformation, Mike Rekuc will return to Silicon Valley to assume his previous post as president of the Americas region.

Dominique Simon occupies a newly created position, VP of business development and global accounts. He will build on his experience in the U.S. to broaden the company's customer base in targeted areas and ensure tighter alignment with major global accounts. Rekuc and Simon will report directly to Ang.
