SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Spansion Inc. (NYSE: CODE), a global leader in embedded systems solutions, today announced the election of O.C. Kwon to Spansion's Board of Directors. Kwon has served as an advisor to the Board since January 2014.
Kwon has over 30 years experience in the semiconductor industry. He is currently senior advisor to SK Hynix and before that was CEO of SK Hynix.
"We are extremely pleased to welcome O.C. to Spansion's Board of Directors. O.C is an international figure in the semiconductor industry," said John Kispert, CEO of Spansion. "He brings both leadership experience and a strong semiconductor background to Spansion's Board and will be an excellent asset to the company."
Kwon has served in many leadership positions in areas such as business management, development, marketing, strategic planning and manufacturing. Before his leadership appointment at SK Hynix, he held several positions with Hynix and Hyundai Electronics America. During his tenure at Hynix, he was part of many initiatives critical to the company's business restructuring, recapitalization, strategic alliances and new business development.

"It's an exciting time to join Spansion's Board, especially given the momentum in the business," said Kwon. "I'm looking forward to working with the company's Board of Directors, and being part of Spansion's transformation as it continues to position itself for long-term growth and global leadership in embedded systems."
