    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.

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.

  • Modern Governance 12.0: Diligent Launches Modern Leadership to Help Organizations Build More Diverse and Inclusive Boards and Leadership Teams
    Modern Governance 12.0: Diligent Launches Modern Leadership to Help Organizations Build More Diverse and Inclusive Boards and Leadership Teams     Diligent Corporation, a leading modern governance company used by nearly 700,000 board directors and leaders, today introduced Modern Leadership - an initiative to provide senior leaders with the resources, insights, partnerships, and technology they need to further catalyze diversity in their organizations and modernize governance. Diligent also announced today, Diligent Director Network - the largest and most diverse community of board-ready executives globally created to widen the pool of diverse candidates for a vacant board seat. With the Director Network, Diligent is: · Activating Diligent’s network of nearly 700,000 board directors and leaders across 16,000 organizations to nominate diverse, board-ready executives to build a database of largely untapped talent that will be searchable free of charge within the Diligent application. · Teaming up with leading private equity firms to post more than 50 board roles for increased visibility and transparency for diverse director candidates. The 10+ private equity firms that have each committed to posting five open board roles include Insight Partners, Clearlake Capital, Vista Equity Partners, Hellman & Friedman, Hg, Genstar Capital, TA Associates, K1 Investment Management, Aurora Capital Partners, and Grain Management. · Partnering with Spencer Stuart, a leading executive search and leadership advisory firm, to post board searches in the Diligent application creating more transparency for diverse candidates to apply for those roles. Spencer Stuart has long recognized the value of board diversity - last year, minority executives and women comprised more than 60% of their placements in the U.S. · Partnering with organizations that have a track record and mission for diversifying board rooms and executive suites - including The Executive Leadership Council, Ascend, Latino Corporate Directors Association, and National Association of Corporate Directors - to promote and create opportunities for their members. · Opening an offer to Diligent’s clients to post open board and executive roles within Director Network for visibility and transparency for diverse rising directors. “Diligent is committed to being a catalyst for greater diversity and inclusion, starting with the highest levels of leadership - and we are using our network of nearly 700,000 board directors and leaders to help drive that change,” said Brian Stafford, CEO of Diligent. “By increasing the number and visibility of diverse board members, truly changing composition from the top, we believe organizations will be able to better serve stakeholders and create long-lasting, positive change in the world. We hope other companies will join us to create more board and C-Suite opportunities for diverse talent.” “There is no doubt that successful and visionary corporate leadership today requires diverse viewpoints, perspectives, and experiences that create a richer fabric for guidance and decision making, and Modern Leadership is meant to help organizations create their best futures,” continued Mr. Stafford. The first job posting in the Director Network is from Diligent itself as the Diligent board of directors seeks to add an additional independent director, ideally with a racially diverse background. There has never been a more pressing time for change and diversity in the U.S. and across the globe - and a more critical moment to identify and address a lack of diversity within the highest levels of leadership. Today, there are only four Black CEOs across Fortune 500 companies, representing less than 1% of the makeup. Additionally, 83.9% of all directors of Fortune 500 companies are Caucasian/White according to Deloitte. Modern Leadership intends to improve those numbers as Diligent and other companies actively measure and report on diversity as a part of their ESG strategy. Modern Leadership will also include convenings of existing, rising, and next generation leadership to discuss actions to drive change in the boardroom and at the executive level. Creating transparency around available board roles via partnerships with private equity “In order to address social and economic justice, we need scalable solutions that speak to both Main Street and the boardroom,” said Robert F. Smith, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Vista. “We’re proud of the work Vista Equity Partners’ portfolio companies are doing to address access, equality, and building the talent pipeline, and we’re thrilled to also join Diligent's smart and scalable initiative to increase board diversity. This is the right way to empower corporations to make strides towards equality of opportunity. Vista proudly joins Diligent and its partners in taking this critical step along the path toward a more just and equitable future." “Diligent’s Modern Leadership initiative aligns closely with the long-held principle at Clearlake that diversity drives differentiated outcomes,” said José E. Feliciano, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Clearlake Capital. “It’s evident that the Diligent team, in tandem with the company’s industry partners, are committed to increasing diversity in leadership roles for the long-term. We are proud to partner alongside Diligent in what we hope will become a long list of our peers, as we collectively advocate and take the necessary steps to ensure a major change at the board level.” “Insight firmly believes that diversity is a fundamental asset of high-performing boards,” said Deven Parekh, Managing Director at Insight Partners, who led the 2016 take-private of Diligent. “We’re committed to driving change within the software ecosystem and invested in Diligent because we believe its platform has potential to transform leadership. Diligent’s Director Network will enhance our board recruitment and executive search process in pursuit of better outcomes for our portfolio companies and our community. We are proud to not only participate in this initiative, but to help bring our fellow private equity peers to the boardroom table as well.” “Grain Management was built on the principle that access is critical. The digital economy has the power to lift people up, bring people together, and level the playing field - but only if we harness technology to scale positive change. I admire how quickly the Diligent team built this new tool, to connect the supply of outstanding leaders and the demand among companies to diversify their boards,” commented David Grain, Founder and CEO of Grain Management. “I look forward to supporting this platform and benefiting from the diversity of thought, background and opinion that it helps inspire in the boards of our portfolio companies, and in companies all across the world.” Expanding the pool of diverse, board-ready candidates through partnerships with organizations whose mission is diversifying board rooms “The Executive Leadership Council is committed to advancing the role and contributions of Black executives. This partnership with Diligent will provide our members even more visibility during the board and executive search process,” said Crystal E. Ashby, Interim President and CEO of The Executive Leadership Council. “We look forward to working together to increase the number of Black directors and executives at leading organizations.” “There is an urgent need for more diverse board members and executives at companies around the world but change of this magnitude cannot be done alone,” said Esther Aguilera, President & CEO, Latino Corporate Directors Association. “We are excited to partner with Diligent to bring even more scale and speed to a systemic issue that is incredibly important to us and our members.” “The Pan-Asian community is the fastest-growing population in the U.S., but approximately 70% of Fortune 1000 companies do not have the benefit of an Asian perspective in the boardroom,” stated Janet Wong, Ascend Pinnacle, Lead Executive Advisor. "Ascend is pleased to partner with Diligent to help companies tap into the broad network of talented Pan-Asian directors and executives to help ensure corporate leadership reflects their important perspectives.”

  • 속보S. Korea on alert over yet another cluster infection amid eased social distancing
    S. Korea on alert over yet another cluster infection amid eased social distancing   SEOUL, May 8 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's health authorities are raising their guard against an increase in new virus cases, as the country reported yet another cluster infection Friday after easing social distancing. The country detected 12 more cases of the new coronavirus Thursday, most of which came from overseas, bringing the nation's total infections to 10,822, according to the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC). The tally marked new daily cases of more than 10 for the first time in five days. But health authorities said an additional 13 cases were reported Friday, marking yet another cluster infection. All of Friday's new infections were linked to a virus patient who visited three clubs in Seoul's popular multicultural neighborhood of Itaewon on Saturday, just days before the country shifted toward 'everyday life quarantine.' The entrance of a club located in the multicultural neighborhood of Itaewon shows it is closed on May 8, 2020. A virus patient was earlier found to have visited several clubs in the district a day earlier, raising concerns over possible community transmission. (Yonhap)
