    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.

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.

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.

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] Disneyland Paris closes amid second COVID-19 lockdown in France
    [단독외신] Disneyland Paris closes amid second COVID-19 lockdown in France   Enlarge Image Getty Images   Disneyland Paris is temporarily closing again as France enters a second nationwide lockdown to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The closure, which took hold at the end of the day Thursday, is another blow for Disney, which has been trying to reopen its flagship Disneyland theme park in California. Disneyland Paris, which had reopened July 15 following a mid-March shutdown along with the rest of Disney’s parks, said in a statement that the closure is “in line with the latest direction from the French authorities,” and that it hopes to reopen for the holiday season. The theme park said it will be taking reservations from Dec. 19 through Jan. 3 “and hope(s) to be open based on prevailing conditions and government guidance at that time,” adding that it will be closed after that, from Jan. 4 through Feb. 12. France’s President Emmanuel Macron said Wednesday that the country would go in lockdown that will last until at least Dec. 1.  Non-essential businesses, restaurants and bars will be closed starting Monday as the country battles a surge in coronavirus infections that hospitals warn could cause capacity issues. Meanwhile, the virus in the US has continued to surge and there are question marks around whether Disneyland in California will reopen anytime soon and if the Orlando, Fla.-based Disney World in Orlando, which reopened in July, will be forced to shut down. Although there are a handful of Disney theme parks currently open across the globe, all 12 of its parks in North America, Asia and Europe were closed between March and May. As a result, in the first half of the year, Disney suffered a $6.2 billion dip in revenue from the same period last year. Last month, the company said it plans to lay off 28,000 workers at its California and Florida theme parks.

  • [단독외신] Amazon says COVID-related expenses will cost $4B this quarter
    [단독외신] Amazon says COVID-related expenses will cost $4B this quarter   Getty Images     By the time this fiscal quarter is through, Amazon estimates it will have spent more than $11 billion on coronavirus-related expenses. The e-commerce titan said during its Thursday earnings report that it expects to spend around $4 billion battling the virus, on top of the $7.5 billion in costs it has already rung up since March. First quarter coronavirus expenses cost Amazon $600 million, with the number ballooning to $4 billion during the peak of the pandemic and decreasing slightly to $2.5 billion in the most recent quarter, the company said. Investments included personal protective equipment for Amazon’s workforce — which it announced on Thursday has hit 1 million — “enhanced cleaning” of its facilities, higher wages for hourly workers as well as “hundreds of millions” of dollars for Amazon to develop its coronavirus testing capabilities. Much of the increased costs are related to “the large influx of new employees hired to support strong customer demand,” CFO Brian Olsavsky said on a call with analysts. The Seattle-based e-tailer’s guidance on operating income for the quarter was $1.5 billion to $4 billion, and already factored in the Covid-related spending. Olsavsky said that the pandemic, along with the upcoming election and the fact that the company’s Prime Day shopping extravaganza was delayed until October this year, has created a lot of uncertainty for the holiday quarter. Shares of Amazon were down 4 percent Friday morning, trading at $3,082.99.

  • [단독외신] Ex-Wirecard executive was reportedly an Austrian spy informant
    [단독외신] Ex-Wirecard executive was reportedly an Austrian spy informant   AFP via Getty Images  An ex-Wirecard executive who went on the lam amid the German payment firm’s $2 billion accounting scandal was reportedly a mole for Austrian spies. German authorities have evidence that Jan Marsalek, Wirecard’s former chief operating officer, was an informant for the Office for the Protection of the Constitution and Counterterrorism, the Austrian intelligence agency known as the BVT, according to Munich’s Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper. The outlet’s Thursday report cited the German government’s response to a written question from lawmaker Fabio De Masi. Another member of German parliament, Patrick Sensburg, told the Handelsblatt newspaper that Marsalek may have worked for “several secret services from different countries,” though he did not cite specific evidence for the claim. “In clearing up the Wirecard scandal, Austria and Germany should now work closely and trustingly together,” Sensburg told the paper, according to a translation. Authorities have been searching for Marsalek since Wirecard admitted in June that roughly 1.9 billion euros ($2.2 billion) listed on its accounts likely didn’t exist. The financial-tech giant filed for insolvency that month after former CEO Markus Braun was arrested in relation to the scandal. Marsalek’s exact whereabouts are unknown, but Germany’s Der Spiegel magazine reported in July that he traveled to Minsk, Belarus soon after Wirecard suspended him in June. Interpol has issued a so-called red notice for the 40-year-old, saying he faces charges for allegedly violating German securities laws, fraud and “criminal breach of trust.” Police have accused Marsalek and Braun of using bogus income from transactions related to deals with “third-party acquirers” to make the company look more attractive to investors.

  • [단독외신] Twitter shares plummet after user growth falls short
    [단독외신] Twitter shares plummet after user growth falls short     Enlarge Image Shutterstock    Twitter’s stock price plunged in premarket trading Friday as the social network added far fewer users than Wall Street expected in the third quarter. The San Francisco-based tech giant’s shares were down 15.5 percent at $44.30 as of 7:35 a.m. a day after it reported having 187 million average monetizable daily active users from July to September, an increase of just 1 million from the prior quarter. The figure marked a 29 percent increase from the same period last year but fell well short of Wall Street analysts’ expectations for 195.2 million users. Twitter also predicted a rocky three months ahead as it navigates the presidential election and scrutiny of its attempts to limit political disinformation, which drew fire from Republicans at a heated Senate hearing this week. Twitter’s third-quarter revenues climbed 14 percent from last year to $936 million, but the company said it’s “hard to predict” how advertisers might react as the contentious election nears. It noted that many brands paused or slowed down ad spending amid the anti-police brutality protests that swept the nation in May and June. “The period surrounding the US election is somewhat uncertain, but we have no reason to believe that September’s revenue trends can’t continue, or even improve, outside of the election-related window,” chief financial officer Ned Segal said on a call with investors Thursday. Twitter also expects its costs and expenses to grow close to 20 percent in the fourth quarter because of increased investments that it had intended to make before the COVID-19 pandemic struck. Twitter’s earnings report came a day after Sen. Ted Cruz ripped CEO Jack Dorsey over the company’s handling of The Post’s articles about Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. Twitter locked The Post out of its primary Twitter account and blocked users from sharing the links to articles based on emails from a laptop that reportedly belonged to the younger Biden. The platform later lifted its blockade on the links but continues to prohibit The Post from tweeting from its main account.
