u-blox expands its executive committee team with new CFO

(PresseBox) (Thalwil, )
As of 1 August 2011, u-blox will expand its Executive Committee team with an additional member who will assume leadership of the finance department as CFO. The Board of Directors has appointed Mr. Roland Jud to this function. Mr. Jud is a seasoned financial expert with extensive experience built up through many years of service with publicly listed industrial companies.

Mr. Jean-Pierre Wyss, the current Head of Finance, has performed this function in addition to his role as head of logistics, production and quality since the founding u-blox in 1997. While Mr. Wyss has done an outstanding job, his multiple roles are expected to be unmanageable as the company continues to grow. The appointment of Mr. Jud will allow Mr. Wyss to focus on the further development and improvement of operational functions. Mr. Wyss remains member of the Executive Committee and of the Board of Directors.
