Madden, executive vice president and chief financial officer of Ingram Micro Inc., to the Mindspeed board of directors.

"I am delighted to welcome Ming and Tom, two seasoned professionals with unique strengths and capabilities, to our board of directors," said Raouf Halim, chief executive officer of Mindspeed. "Ming's communications technology background and business experience in Asia will be particularly beneficial to building on our strong business foundation in the Asia-Pacific markets. Tom's solid business and financial skills will be invaluable as we move forward as a separate public company. I am convinced that their contributions will enable us to deliver increased value to our customers and shareowners."

Mindspeed's seven-member board of directors is now complete. In addition to Halim, Louie and Madden, the board includes Chairman Dwight W. Decker, chairman and CEO of Conexant Systems; Donald R. Beall, retired chairman and CEO of Rockwell International; Dr. Hossein Eslambolchi, chief technology officer of AT&T and president of AT&T Labs; and Jerre L. Stead, retired chairman and CEO of Ingram Micro. Eslambolchi will resign his seat on the Conexant board of directors to join the Mindspeed board.

Most recently, he served as president of Qualcomm Greater China. Before that he held various management positions at Globalstar LP, including five years as vice president of business development and six years as vice president of system engineering.

He holds a master's degree in electrical engineering from Princeton University, a master's degree in business administration from Drexel University, and a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Polytechnic University of New York.

Madden, who has more than 25 years of strategic financial management experience, joined Ingram Micro as CFO in 2001. Previously, he was the senior vice president and CFO of ArvinMeritor Inc. Madden was instrumental in the merger of Meritor Automotive and Arvin Industries and in Meritor's spin-off from Rockwell International.

He became a certified public accountant while working for Coopers & Lybrand and holds master's and bachelor's degrees in business administration from the University of Pittsburgh and Indiana University of Pennsylvania, respectively.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
