Qorvo Announces Retirement of Dean Priddy
Qorvo, the company formed by the combination of Triquint and RFMD, today announced that Dean Priddy, the company's executive VP of administration, plans to retire at the end of the current fiscal year.
Priddy's accomplished career in technology began at Analog Devices and includes 23 years at RFMD and Qorvo. Prior to his role as executive VP of administration of Qorvo, Priddy was CFO of RF Micro Devices, a position he had held since 1997.
Bob Bruggeworth, president and CEO of Qorvo, said: "Dean's contributions over the past 23 years have played a vital role in guiding RFMD to its many successes and, ultimately, in the creation of Qorvo.
"Most recently, Dean and his team assembled the foundation for Qorvo to capture at least $150 million in cost synergies, and we believe the projects are in place for Qorvo to exceed our goals. Dean's many contributions have extended into nearly every aspect of our organisation, and we wish him and his family the absolute best in his retirement."
Priddy said: "I've been very fortunate to have worked with so many outstanding individuals at ADI, RFMD, and Qorvo. At Qorvo, we have assembled an exceptional team empowered to execute to our value capture plan, and I'm confident in our team's ability to exceed our stated synergy goals. The foundation is set, the funnel is filled, and Qorvo is positioned exceptionally well for continued success."
