Also effective Oct. 21, 2019, Kermit Nolan will resign from his role as interim CFO and resume his previous role as corporate VP and chief accounting officer.
“After a comprehensive search, we selected Dean because of his broad experience in financial operations and his demonstrated skills in driving corporate transformation,” said Michael Hurlston, president and CEO of Synaptics. “I personally worked with Dean while at Broadcom, and I am excited to have him join us, bringing his very relevant skillset to bear as he helps guide the company through our own makeover. In addition, I would like to thank Kermit for his outstanding work during his tenure as interim CFO.”
“I am honored and very excited to be given the opportunity to join Synaptics, and believe I can help the Company on its journey towards expanded gross margins and help drive an increasingly differentiated product portfolio,” added Butler. “Synaptics is an innovative global leader, and I’m looking forward to leveraging my experience in driving financial operations to enhance efficiencies and increase shareholder value.”
