    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.

  • The black community’s best chance may be four more years of Trump
    The black community’s best chance may be four more years of Trump     President Trump's support among black Americans aged 18 to 44 has doubled since he was elected.LightRocket via Getty Images     I was recently chatting with a black friend who leans left politically when she said she would like to see President Trump win. I was surprised: She’s spoken out against the president on social media because of some of his past comments, especially when he told the Proud Boys “to stand back and stand by” during the first presidential debate. But my friend, like many young people in the black community, knows about Joe Biden’s history, which should repel far more black voters than Trump’s racially insensitive comments. I’m hardly the only black voter who feels this way. Biden’s policies have devastated the black community. The infamous 1994 crime bill, for example, which Biden authored, cost taxpayers $30 billion yet only reduced violent crime by 1.3 percent — and in the process, sent a shamefully high number of black youths to jail for marijuana crimes that some states have decriminalized. Or take Biden’s provision of a 1986 law that deemed crack cocaine significantly worse than powder cocaine. As a result, whites, who more often used powder cocaine, were treated with leniency, while blacks were disproportionately sent to prison for the same offenses. Given the choice before us, the best thing for the black community may be four more years of Trump. Why? Maybe then black voters will no longer be ignored and taken for granted by Democrats thereby making both parties work for their vote. Enlarge Image Trump has made appeals to the black community, addressing issues including unemployment and sentencing disparities.Bloomberg via Getty Images It’s time to break the back of the Democratic Party and make its leaders actually address the issues that impact black lives. President Trump is not perfect. He has said things that have rightly upset black Americans. But he’s also uplifted the black community through policies like the First Step Act and opportunity zones. In fact, he’s been reaching out to the black community consistently since 2016, looking for ways to tackle issues such as rampant unemployment and prison sentencing disparities, while funding historically black colleges and universities — all of which Joe Biden could have addressed during his half-century in politics. I’ve never seen another president from either party invest so much energy into the black community. As a result, black people are listening. We see this in the polls. Trump’s support among young black voters (aged 18 to 44) has increased from around 10 percent in 2016 to 21 percent, according to UCLA Nationscape’s polling, and I believe the real percentage is even higher. Indeed, I’ve been watching closely on urban social media pages and seeing young African Americans post their support for Trump. Never before have I seen such widespread support among young African Americans for any Republican president.   On a recent episode of my podcast, “Outloud with Gianno Caldwell,” football legend Herschel Walker expressed a similar sentiment. He said he gets many calls from players in the NFL who support Trump but cannot publicize their support out of fear of retribution. Polling data shows support for Trump trending upward among black and Hispanic men, many of whom are open to supporting an eager, enthusiastic president as they think the Democratic Party has taken them for granted. The black community has a genuine opportunity in this election. If enough blacks vote for Trump, the black vote will finally be competitive. Politicians will at long last actually care about producing positive results for the black community to woo black voters, rather than treating them as another box to check. The black vote hasn’t been competitive in decades, since Democrat Lyndon Johnson reportedly said, “I will have those n—ers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” For five-plus decades, Republicans haven’t made a sincere effort to counter that monopolistic hubris — until Trump. We have an opportunity to force both parties to offer their best deals to black Americans and improve the black community in a way that has never happened before. It’s time to make the black vote competitive again. Gianno Caldwell is a Fox News Political Analyst, host of the podcast “Outloud with Gianno Caldwell” and author of “Taken for Granted: How Conservatism Can Win Back the Americans That Liberalism Failed.”

  • US judge blocks TikTok ban, calls security threat ‘hypothetical’
    US judge blocks TikTok ban, calls security threat ‘hypothetical’   SOPA Images/LightRocket via Gett   TikTok got yet another reprieve on Friday after a federal judge blocked a Trump administration ban which would have effectively shut down the Chinese-owned app in the US on Nov. 12. The Pennsylvania judge issued a preliminary injunction Friday that will stop US officials from restricting the popular video platform’s web hosting and content delivery after three TikTok users argued that it would stop them from being able to make a living. The judge wrote that because TikTok videos can be deemed “informational materials,” the president’s ban would stop the spread of the videos in addition to blocking “business-to-business transactions.” “[The ban] will have the effect of shutting down, within the United States, a platform for expressive activity used by approximately 700 million individuals globally,” the judge wrote. “Over 100 million of these TikTok users are within the United States, and at least 50 million of these US users use the app on a daily basis.” The judge added that “the Government’s own descriptions of the national security threat posed by the TikTok app are phrased in the hypothetical,” and that they “cannot say the risk presented by the Government outweighs the public interest” in keeping TikTok running. The government parties in the suit — which include President Trump, the Department of Commerce and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross — have argued that the TikTok’s parent company ByteDance has direct ties to officials in Beijing and could siphon personal information from American TikTok users that could then be used against the country. US officials couldn’t immediately be reached for comment about the Friday ruling.

  • [단독외신] Jittery Wall Street banks brace for election-fueled uncertainty
    [단독외신] Jittery Wall Street banks brace for election-fueled uncertainty   Getty Images   Large Wall Street banks have been running “war game” drills in their trading businesses and preparing clients for unexpected scenarios around next week’s elections, hoping to avoid liquidity crunches or technical errors as markets react to news of who will be running the White House and Congress, industry sources said. There is more confidence now than a few weeks ago that there will be a clear presidential winner, because Democrat Joe Biden has moved up in polls against incumbent Republican President Trump. However, the two men are tied in some key states, according to the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll, suggesting it may not be a slam dunk. Traders, bankers and wary fund managers told Reuters they are preparing for a wide range of outcomes. One bank’s equities desk has been running drills across major trading hubs in New York, London, Paris and Hong Kong for a variety of scenarios to make sure systems can handle enormous volatility, an executive there told Reuters. That bank has been reaching out to top customers to get a sense of how much they expect to trade and ask whether they need margin limits increased, and to suggest they send orders through approved electronic systems rather than calling, to avoid inadvertent mistakes, the person said. Another global lender hired its own polling firm to check popular assumptions and prepare for unforeseen possibilities, an executive there said. The polling firm’s work underscored the common assumption that Biden is likely to win, but the bank is preparing for other scenarios anyway, said the executive who, like some others, spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss non-public internal planning. Only the most daring investors are going into Nov. 3 with large trading positions, several sources said. Most do not want to be forced sellers if they get things wrong. Plus, even those who bet correctly risk the chance of a drawn-out election battle where markets flip back and forth for weeks or months. “I don’t think anybody is willing to bet on any particular outcome,” said Peter Kraus, a former executive at Wall Street banks including Goldman Sachs who founded asset management firm Aperture Investors in 2018. “The rational thing to do is to take your risk down.” If Kraus were running a trading desk at a major bank today, he would tell traders to take as neutral a position as possible, he said. “I would much rather be coming into the election with a set of flat positions and liquidity and, if the worst happened, I would be able to service the trading volume,” he said. Since banks began preparing for the election, polls and circumstances have shifted several times – making lenders more jittery about any assumptions, even days before the event. In late September, bankers told Reuters they were prepping for a situation with no clear winner. Volatility has already begun to pick up in equity and currency markets over rising coronavirus statistics, giving some traders and bankers a queasy feeling about the days ahead. Contingency planning around major events is not unusual for major global banks, which face regulatory stress tests each year to ensure they have enough capital and liquidity to survive extreme scenarios. Big trading firms conduct similar trials, as do exchanges that have been planning for soaring volumes and technical glitches, as Reuters reported on Thursday.
