EINDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS -- (Marketwired) -- 10/10/13 -- NXP
Semiconductors N.V. ("NXP") (NASDAQ: NXPI) announced that today's
Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders resolved to appoint Dr.
Marion Helmes and Julie Southern as non-executive directors in its
Board of Directors. Both Dr. Helmes and Ms. Southern will also be
members of the Board's Audit Committee.
"In the spirit of diversity of thought we are pleased to find two new
competent directors," said Rick Clemmer, President and CEO of NXP.
Dr. Helmes is Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and speaker of the
management board of pharmaceutical company Celesio AG. Prior to
joining Celesio, Dr. Helmes was CFO of Q-Cells SE and held various
management roles at ThyssenKrupp AG. Ms. Southern is a former CFO and
Chief Commercial Officer of Virgin Atlantic Ltd., the UK's second
largest long-haul airline; prior to that, she was chartered
accountant at Price Waterhouse.
"I am excited to be able to welcome Dr. Marion Helmes and Julie
Southern as independent non-executive directors," said Sir Peter
Bonfield, Chairman of the Board of Directors of NXP. "Both bring a
tremendous amount of expertise and experience to our Board of
Directors. In addition, their appointments will increase the
independence of our board."
Vikram Bhatia, who was originally nominated to the Board by the
Philips UK Pension Fund ("PPTL") in May 2011, has resigned as of
today as non-executive director in view of the decreased shareholding
of PPTL. "I am very thankful for Viki's contribution to our Board
during NXP's journey in the last four years and wish him all the
best," said Sir Peter Bonfield.
