IRVINE, Calif. -- Broadcom Corporation (Nasdaq: BRCM) announced that Scott A. McGregor today joined the company as President and Chief Executive Officer and a member of the Board of Directors, following his formal election to those positions by the Broadcom Board of Directors.

McGregor, 48, who most recently served as President and CEO of the Philips Semiconductors division of Royal Philips Electronics in The Netherlands, started work today in his new position at Broadcom's headquarters in Irvine, Calif.
