"His strong background in all aspects of corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, operational accounting and corporate governance will be a valuable asset as we take Skyworks to the next level."

Most recently Kline was chief financial officer for Fibermark, a producer of specialty fiber based materials and from 1996 to 2002, he was chief financial officer for Acterna Corp., a global communications test and management company.

Paul E. Vincent, who now serves as Skyworks' vice president and chief financial officer, will continue with the company as vice president of finance and shift his focus accordingly. "After 25 years with the company and following a highly successful merger integration, Paul had expressed his wish to transition into a different, yet pivotal role concentrating on and directing the activities of our finance team. Allan and I look forward to continuing to leverage his considerable skill sets," Aldrich concluded.
