Xilinx CEO Announces Retirement
At the helm of Xilinx since 1996, Roelandts led the company through an intense period of change within the semiconductor industry, growing Xilinx sales from $560 million to over $1.8 billion. During his tenure, Roelandts significantly expanded the Company's global business and initiated its successful market diversification strategy to better address high-growth end markets, including consumer, automotive, industrial and defense. These markets have grown from 12 percent of total revenues in fiscal year 2002 to 45 percent of total revenues today.
