GLOBALFOUNDRIES, a provider of advanced semiconductor manufacturing technology, announced today that Alain Mutricy has joined the company as senior vice president of the Product Management Group. In this role, Mutricy is responsible for the company’s leading edge and mainstream technology solutions and go-to-market activities for these differentiated products.

Mutricy succeeds Mike Cadigan, who will transition to a newly created role as senior vice president of global sales and business development.

“Alain is an accomplished senior executive with more than 25 years of experience in the consumer electronics, mobile, and semiconductor industries,” said GLOBALFOUNDRIES CEO Sanjay Jha. “He brings a strong portfolio of successes contributing to growth, profitability, and competitiveness for global product organizations, which will help him build on the strong foundation we have already established in our product management group. I am thrilled to welcome Alain to the GlobalFoundries team.”

Before joining GlobalFoundries, Mutricy was founder and executive adviser at AxINNOVACTION, a consulting firm that promotes action to unlock and accelerate innovation in big organizations, as well as co-founder and CEO of Vuezr, which attempted to revolutionize mobile direct marketing by delivering product visual recognition to consumers’ mobile devices via augmented reality.

From 2007-2012, Mutricy served as senior vice president of portfolio and device product management for mobile devices at Motorola Mobility Holdings, Inc., where he led a global team responsible for defining the company’s mobile devices product portfolio strategy and structure. He and his team advanced a strategic focus on Android-based smartphones, which included the widely acclaimed family of DROID by Motorola products. During his tenure at Motorola Mobility, Mutricy was also responsible for defining and directing the Mobile Devices business unit’s global strategy for silicon and software platforms, as well as leadership of a global R&D team responsible for designing and implementing integrated circuits, wireless chipset solutions, platform software, product software for non-CDMA products, and an ecosystem strategy for mobile devices.

Prior to joining Motorola in 2007, Mutricy served at Texas Instruments for 18 years, where he was promoted to vice president in January 2002. From 2004 until his departure from Texas Instruments, Mutricy served as vice president and general manager for the company’s Cellular Systems Solutions business. In that role, he was responsible for commercializing and building a leadership position for the company’s wireless chipset solutions for GSM/GPRS/EDGE/3G and OMAP application processors. Prior to leading Cellular Systems Solutions, Mutricy was general manager for the Texas Instruments OMAP business, which he led from start-up status to global leadership between 2000 and 2004. Additionally, from the time he joined Texas Instruments in 1989, Mutricy was promoted through a series of general- management positions, each with increasing scope and responsibility in areas including sales, marketing and general management.

Mutricy holds a master’s degree in engineering from ENSAM and an MBA from HEC Group—both in Paris.
