Bob is a very talented leader with a terrific knowledge of RF Micro Devices' business. His stewardship of the wireless products group and, subsequently, as president of RF Micro Devices, have demonstrated the depth of his expertise and experience, and I wish him great success in his expanded role as CEO. When transition planning began early this year, I identified Bob as my first choice as successor, and his appointment to president in June was a well-deserved step in that process. I believe he is absolutely the right person to lead RF Micro Devices into the future." In June 2002, Bob Bruggeworth was appointed president of RF Micro Devices. He was formerly president of RF Micro Devices' wireless products group. Mr. Bruggeworth also served as vice president of the wireless products group from September 1999 to January 2002.
