Silicon Laboratories Inc. (Austin, TX) announced that Dan Rabinovitsj has been promoted to Vice President of the company's wireless products group. Rabinovitsj is one of the founding members of Silicon Laboratories' wireless team and has been serving in senior leadership positions since the group's inception. Rabinovitsj will replace Ed Healy, who served as Vice President of wireless products since the group was created and was one of the company's earliest contributors to the wireless business. Healy is leaving the company to take the position of Chief Executive Officer for a non-competing startup company.
"Ed was instrumental in driving the product group to a leadership position in the transceiver market and building what is, in my estimation, the best wireless team in the world. We wish him the best in his new endeavor," said Silicon Laboratories Chairman and interim Chief Executive Officer Nav Sooch. "It is with great pleasure that we promote Dan Rabinovitsj to this role. He is an accomplished, proven leader that is well respected by both internal and external peers. I am confident that under his leadership Silicon Laboratories' wireless group will continue its impressive track record in the handset market."
