Innolux Names New Vice Chairman, President

Oct 17, 2018

Innolux has appointed its president Robert Hsiao as vice chairmanship and also promoted its vice president James Yang to president, effective immediately, according to an announcement of the LCD panel maker.

The shake-up of the management came in less than six months after the company appointed Jim Hung as chairman in June.

Hsiao's appointment as vice chairman aims to accelerate the company's global deployment, while helping the company further boost its competitiveness, according to the statement.

An English-language Taipei Times report indicated that Hsiao will also assume the management of a TV assembly business in India to support the business expansion of its major client Sharp there.

Under Hsiao's management, Innolux restarted its TV assembly business in mid-2017. The company said earlier that it plans to ramp up its ODM TV shipments to 500,000 units a month in the third quarter of 2018.

Yang, with 24 years of experience in the flat panel industry, has expertise spanning R&D, manufacturing, marketing and business management. He also helped Innolux pioneer the production of 19- and 20-inch widescreen monitor panels in 2004.
