    CEO Interview , Mr. Lee Seung Soo  (CEO / Infineon technologies Korea)   Interviewer : Alicia Song ( GEBS , Reporter) Interviewee : Mr. Lee Seung Soo  (CEO / Infineon technologies Korea) Reporter   (Hello Everyone, my name is Alicia Song and I am a reporter for GEBS, a foreign company news station in Korea.  I am also the Director of Public Relations at the KOFA. Today, I am honored to be joined with Mr.Lee Seung-Soo, the country manager of the Korean branch of Infineon Technologies)  (Hello Mr. Lee, first of all, thank you very much for accepting this interview.  I know that Infineon Technologies headquarters is based in Germany and Infineon Technologies Korea’s branch is located in Samseong-dong, Gannamgu, Seoul).  Would you please share with us an introduction about Infineon Technologies?) Mr. Lee Seung Soo  :  In the 2020 fiscal year (ending 30 September), Infineon reported revenue of more than €8.5 billion with a workforce of some 46,700 people worldwide. Following the acquisition of the US company Cypress Semiconductor Corporation in April 2020, Infineon is now a global top 10 semiconductor company. We play a key role in shaping a better future – with microelectronics that link the real and the digital world. Our semiconductors enable efficient energy management, smart mobility, as well as secure, seamless communications in an increasingly connected world. Infineon Technologies Korea is located in Samseong-dong, Gangnam and working around 240 employees. Also we set up the sales office in Daegu to provide qualified support for customers in South area. Major customers are Hyundai Motor group, Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics and Infineon Korea have ranked No.1 in Automotive semiconductor area.  Reporter   (Thank you for the introduction. Would you please describe what the organizational culture (OD & Culture) and ideal Talent Style of Infineon Technologies Korea is?) Mr. Lee Seung Soo  :   Infineon Korea respects Korean culture based on IFX head quarter’s structure. All employees are responsible for own work and we place a high value on exchanging necessary feedback each other. There’s a communication format called Leadership dialogue that not only the manager give feedback to the staffs, but the staffs also give feedback to their manager.  Infineon Korea is working on a campaign to call nickname instead of Korean title. We will continue this campaign to make more respectful and equal organizational culture.  Reporter   (Would you please outline the compensation & benefits (C&B) and HR (HRM) system of Infineon Technologies Korea?) Mr. Lee Seung Soo: Infineon Korea provides ‘Flexible spending account’ what employees can use this one like credit card anywhere, anytime. And we are constantly trying to offer the necessary program for employee’s wellness.  Infineon Korea operate global HR system stably. Managers have a performance evaluation with each employee frequently and we managing not only evaluation, but also various training program for employee’s development. Reporter   (How would you describe the labor-management culture of Infineon Technologies Korea?) Mr. Lee Seung Soo:  We have the labor-management council meeting quarterly.

Mr. Lee Seung Soo:  Most working mothers should take care of both their family and work. They are used to doing two things same time and they know how to use their time efficiently. To finish the work in time, concentration and sensitivity are required. As such, working mothers have many strengths.  I think it’s important to experience various positions in one field if you have a goal to become a CEO. For example, If you’re working as engineer you can try sales position, if you’re working as sales you can try marketing position. Make your unique career focusing on the position what enable to catch the big flow of company’s moving forward. I look forward to meeting many woman CEOs soon. Reporter -  (The world economy has been stunned since the Pandemic.  Would you please highlight some of the real difficulties that currently surround your company industry as well as the future outlook of the industry?) Mr. Lee Seung Soo:  As many people know already Automotive semiconductor supply issue is very serious now days. Semiconductors account for 18% of the total cost of automotive electronics in 2000 but it’s 40% in 2020. The demand has increased significantly but only few foundry companies produce automotive semiconductor because it’s not profitable. It’s expected to continue overeating of automotive semiconductors for a while due to great interest of autonomous driving, electric vehicles and COVID pandemic. To counteract this problem, Infineon is doing the best to find good solutions for our customers. Reporter -  (Lastly, as a mentor who contributes so much to his community, please share with us any wisdom you may have for young job seekers) Mr. Lee Seung Soo:  We are living in an era of rapid change and COVID pandemic has made it harder to get a job. But the economic is slowly recovering and I believe there are opportunities even though it’s a difficult situation. It’s late if you start preparing when the good opportunity happened. You should decide the direction you want to go and make the qualifications and experience to match the job you want. If you decide a job you want to do, I’d like to recommend that you get information about the company you want to work as much as you can. It would be helpful that find the company’s management direction, changes in the industry and company’s outlook. Many companies want you if If you can clearly show your potential and your goals to contribute within the company.

  • [단독외신] New high voltage battery housing for lightweight emobility developed by Evonik and partners
    New high voltage battery housing for lightweight emobility developed by Evonik and partners       New high voltage battery housing for lightweight e- mobility developed by Evonik and partners   • Novel SMC materials reduce battery housing weight by ~10% while maintaining strength and high voltage performance • Lightweight battery components deliver significant energy savings to ensure suitability for all vehicle size and classes • Evonik’s new epoxy SMC – VESTALITE® S curing agent enables lightweight design and production flexibility   Essen, Germany. Evonik as part of a consortium of companies, has developed a lighter and more cost-effective battery concept for e- mobility solutions. The new holistic battery system concept offers the automotive industry a safer and more energy efficient lightweight alternative to the heavier metal-based, or higher priced carbon fiber-reinforced plastics. Although millions of electric cars and plug-in hybrids are already on the roads worldwide, there are still no generally applicable standards for the individual components. However, significant efforts are currently being made to standardize individual vehicle assemblies and establish a cross-market component standard. Increasing the range of the vehicles by improving the storage capacity of the batteries and efficient energy recovery is currently one of the main areas of focus. In addition, reducing the weight of the individual vehicle components can also help to reduce the amount of energy required to overcome driving resistance (e.g. tire rolling, gradient, acceleration). To this end, Evonik, Forward Engineering, LION Smart, Lorenz Kunststofftechnik and Vestaro (a joint venture of Evonik and Forward Engineering), began working together on a modular- multi-material approach at the end of 2019. Today, the partnership has developed a brand-independent, cost-effective solution that significantly reduces the weight of the battery housing by approximately 10 percent compared to other commonly used material combinations, without any loss in mechanical properties. Developed for three different battery-sizes, 65kWh, 85 kWh and 120 kWh for use in various vehicles sizes and class, one of the key elements of the new battery concept is the glass fiber (GF)- Sheet Molding Compound (SMC) cover. Based on the high-performance epoxy curing agent VESTALITE® S from Evonik, the new SMC delivers the performance levels of the previous metal-based battery enclosures, while being significantly lighter than the current more cost-prohibitive SMC Materials. “Battery modules and their housing has become a key area for improving the performance, efficiency and affordability of modern electric vehicles,” said Dr. Leif Ickert, Marketing Manager Composites and Adhesives, Evonik Operations GmbH & Managing Director, Vestaro GmbH. “Composite technologies provide strength and versatility, so offer a very promising solution for future battery system concepts. Our new glass fiber-reinforced SMC delivers the performance and economic benefits the automotive industry requires to push ahead with the next generation of sustainable e-mobility concepts.” The glass-fiber-reinforced epoxy SMC has excellent mechanical properties including flexural and impact strength, and by using epoxy resin instead of the usual polyester resin, other problems often encountered during downstream processing of glass-fiber- reinforced SMC materials have been eliminated. Additionally, it meets all specifications regarding fire resistance and is easy to process even when complex geometries are demanded. The entire concept was successfully tested for suitability for series production and safety even under extreme conditions. Additionally, consortium partner, Lorenz Kunststofftechnik has developed an established process for successfully recycling glass fiber-reinforced SMC materials – an important argument in view of the increasing sustainability requirements in the automotive industry.   For more detailed information about the new battery housing concept, images and additional quotes from the consortium’s partners please visit evonik.com/vestalite-s. For specific information about Evonik’s new VESTALITE® S epoxy curing agent please visit www.vestalite.com. About Evonik Evonik is one of the world leaders in specialty chemicals.

  • [단독외신] Sneaker site StockX valued at $2.8 billion in new funding roun
    Sneaker site StockX valued at $2.8 billion in new funding roun    a fast-growing web destination of hard-to-find sneakers — said Wednesday it had raised $275 million in a new funding round that values the company at $2.8 billion. The latter figure, which includes the value of the fresh pile of cash, follows an exclusive report by The Post on Dec. 7, which said the company was looking to raise about $250 million at a valuation of $2.5 billion. The fast growing auction house has more than doubled its valuation from its January 2019 last major fund-raising round that valued it at a little over $1 billion. The Detroit-based company is currently planning to file for an initial public offering in mid-2021, according to sources close to the situation. Proceeds are expected to fuel growth in Asia for the site, which assigns ticker symbols to sneakers in a scrolling feed that displays bids, offers and green and red arrows to show how prices are moving. Cleveland Cavaliers Owner Dan Gilbert is a cofounder and rapper Eminem is an early investor. StockX, which authenticates all the sneakers it resells, charges a 9 to 14 percent commission on transactions. Eminem Getty Images While many of the sneakers on the site are being offered for resale after being snatched up in limited edition sales, most have never been worn. The pandemic has helped the business as it is harder now to shop at stores for sneakers, executives have said. The average sale on the site is about $230, according to an investor presentation reviewed by The Post. Despite its growth, it still projects losing $56 million this year, according to its presentation.

  • [단독외신] FDA finds Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine to be safe, 94 percent effective
    FDA finds Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine to be safe, 94 percent effective       The Food and Drug Administration found Moderna’s coronavirus vaccine to be safe and highly effective, bolstering the shot’s chances of being cleared for emergency use this week. In a 54-page report released Tuesday, FDA staff affirmed the Massachusetts biotech firm’s finding that the vaccine is about 94 percent effective and poses no safety concerns that would prevent the agency from granting it an emergency use authorization. The analysis came ahead of a Thursday meeting where the FDA’s Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee is expected to recommend that emergency approval, which would make Moderna’s vaccine the second to be rolled out across the country. The first shots from Pfizer and BioNTech were jabbed into Americans’ arms on Monday. In its own 84-page report, Moderna said the data show “that the known and potential benefits of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine outweigh the known and potential risks.” As with Pfizer’s vaccine, the FDA said Moderna’s shot was similarly effective across racial, ethnic and gender groups and that it worked well in people with medical issues that put them at a high risk of severe COVID-19 infections.  The clinical trial of Moderna’s vaccine also produced strong evidence that it prevents serious cases of the virus, given that all 30 participants who came down with severe infections had received a placebo rather than the vaccine. But the shot’s efficacy did vary somewhat depending on the recipient’s age, the FDA said — it was 95.6 percent effective in adults aged 18 to 64 and 86.4 percent effective in those 65 and older.  Participants in Moderna’s 30,000-person trial also reported some common side effects such as headache, fatigue, muscle aches and pain at the injection site, the FDA said. Pfizer’s shot has caused similar side effects. The FDA said there were no “anaphylactic or severe hypersensitivity reactions” in the study that were closely related to Moderna’s vaccine. Some people in the UK suffered severe allergic reactions after receiving Pfizer’s shot. The FDA will reportedly move quickly to grant the emergency approval for Moderna’s vaccine just as it did for Pfizer’s, which received the clearance a day after the vaccine panel recommended it. Both shots use so-called messenger RNA, genetic material that provokes an immune response to the virus by directing the body to create a tiny amount of coronavirus spike proteins. Enlarge Image A nurse prepares a syringe during a study of a COVID-19 vaccine.[/caption] Moderna says it will have about 20 million vaccine doses available in the US by the end of the year, enough to inoculate roughly 10 million people with two doses apiece. Pfizer, meanwhile, expects to have about 50 million doses on hand globally this year, with about half allocated to the US. The feds expect that 20 million Americans will be able to get their first shots by the end of the month, followed by another 30 million in January. Moderna shares were down about 0.8 percent at $153.91 as of 9:35 a.m. Tuesday.

  • [단독외신] California fines Uber $59 million in dispute over sexual assault data
    California fines Uber $59 million in dispute over sexual assault data   Getty Images     California regulators fined Uber $59 million and threatened to suspend its operating license in the state after it refused to fork over details about sexual assaults that occurred on its trips. An administrative law judge ordered the ride-hailing giant to comply with the California Public Utilities Commission’s request for data about incidents of sexual assault and misconduct that were reported to Uber in the state over the last three years. The commission judge said it was unacceptable for Uber to stonewall regulators’ efforts to gather information about a safety risk to riders. “Rather than casting itself in the role of a victim of regulatory overreach, it is Uber who is playing the part of the obstructionist who has prevented the commission from carrying out its regulatory, investigative, and enforcement duties,” the judge wrote in the Monday ruling. The decision came about a year after Uber released a safety report revealing that it had received more than 3,000 reports of rape and sexual assault related to trips hailed through its platform in the US in 2018. That report prompted the Public Utilities Commission to seek more details about the incidents that occurred in California, including the date, location and time of each one, the circumstances of the assault, and contact information for witnesses as well as each person to whom the assault was reported. Uber has resisted the demand, calling it a “shocking violation of privacy” that could expose sexual assault survivors’ personal information such as full names and phone numbers. The judge noted that the commission ordered the company to submit the data under seal, which would protect any confidential information. Uber could also use a code or another signifier to identify victims instead of their full names, the ruling says. But Uber alleged that the commission has “changed its tune” and now wants to fine the company for failing to comply with an order that it “fundamentally altered.” “These punitive and confusing actions will do nothing to improve public safety and will only create a chilling effect as other companies consider releasing their own reports,” Uber spokesman Harry Hartfield said in a statement. “Transparency should be encouraged, not punished.” Uber has 30 days to appeal the judge’s ruling. The company’s shares were trading up 2.2 percent at $52.59 as of 10:19 a.m. Tuesday.

  • Whom Would You Choose? '유능한 밉상'보다 '호감 가는 바보'와 같이 일하고 싶다고?
    사람들은 능력 있는 사람들과 함께 일하고 싶어할까? 아니면 인간성이 좋은 사람과 함께 일하고 싶어할까? 하버드 경영대학원의 티지아나 카시아로(Tiziana Casciaro) 교수와 소우사 로보(Sousa Lobo) 교수는 이를 확인하기 위해 다양한 글로벌 기업을 대상으로 조사를 실시했다.   그들은 직원들을 ①능력도 좋고 인간성도 좋은 '호감가는 스타(Lovable Star)' 그룹, ②능력도 없으면서 같이 있으면 짜증 나는 '무능한 밉상(Incompetent Jerk)' 그룹, ③능력은 별로지만 다른 사람을 기분 좋게 하는 '호감 가는 바보(Lovable Fool)' 그룹, ④능력은 있지만 같이 있으면 껄끄러운 '유능한 밉상(Competent Jerk)' 그룹으로 나눴다. 그리고 사람들이 어떤 유형의 직원들과 함께 일하고 싶어하는지, 또한 자신에게 문제가 생겼을 때 어떤 유형의 직원들에게 조언을 구하는지 조사했다.   조사 결과, 1순위는 당연히 '호감 가는 스타' 그룹이었다. 그리고 '무능한 밉상' 그룹은 모두의 기피 대상이었다. 그렇다면 남은 두 그룹 가운데 사람들은 누구와 함께 일하고 싶어했을까? 그것은 '유능한 밉상'보다는 '호감 가는 바보' 그룹이었다. 그리고 이러한 결과는 어떤 기업에서든 똑같았다. 결국 호감이 능력을 이긴 셈이다. 카시아로 교수 일행은 이를 '호감 편향(Likeability Bias)'라고 이름 붙였다.   그렇다면 이와 같은 '호감 편향'은 왜 발생하는 것일까? 카시아로 교수 일행은 그 이유로 첫째, 밉상 유형의 사람은 남에게 도움을 주기 싫어하며, 설령 도움을 주더라도 오만한 태도를 보여 남에게 불쾌감을 준다는 점. 둘째, 밉상은 자신에게는 유리하게 상대방에게는 불리하게, 즉 불공정한 게임을 할 것 같은 느낌을 주기 때문이라고 설명한다.   하지만 어떤 사람들은 이러한 조사 결과에 대해 비판적인 의견을 제시하기도 한다. 기업은 성과를 내는 게 목표인데 호감이 간다고 능력이 부족한 직원을 파트너로 선택하는 것은 잘못된 것이 아니냐는 것이다. 하지만 카시아로 교수 일행은 호감 가는 바보는 조직에 매우 중요한 역할을 할 수 있다고 주장한다. 호감 가는 바보는 조직의 '사일로 현상(Silo Effect)'을 해결하는 데 큰 도움이 된다는 것이다.   사일로는 회사 안에서 담을 쌓고 다른 부서와 소통하지 않으면서 자기 부서의 이익만 추구하는 집단을 말한다. 이런 사일로 현상이 심해지면 부서간의 협조는 불가능해진다. 사일로 현상을 해결하는 방법은 단 하나, 다른 부서의 사람을 좋아할 이유를 찾아내는 것인데, 호감 가는 바보는 정서적 허브로서 부서간의 윤활유 역할을 한다는 것이다.   조직이 성과를 내는 데 능력은 확실히 중요하다. 하지만 조직은 능력만으로 굴러가지 않는다. 조직구성원들이 서로 호감을 갖고 함께 일하고 싶은 마음을 낼 수 있어야 시너지를 발휘할 수 있다. 모든 직원이 능력도 있고 인간성도 좋으면 더 없이 좋겠지만 그럴 수는 없는 법. 능력은 다소 떨어지지만 인간성 좋은 '분위기 메이커'가 조직에는 필요하다는 것을 리더들은 잊지 말기를 바란다.
