Henkel Names New Global Sales Director for Semiconductor Materials

Feb 02, 2009

Henkel today announced the appointment of Mr. Luc Godefroid as the company's Global Sales Director for its Semiconductor Group. A key member of Henkel's electronics sales team since 2001, Godefroid's new role sees him building on his previous success and directing the global sales efforts of Henkel's worldwide team and expanded product portfolio.

Following Henkel's recent acquisition of the Adhesives and Electronics Materials businesses from National Starch and Chemical Company, Godefroid was tapped to head the Project Management Office, the group of leaders selected to facilitate and communicate all integration activities. With the integration well underway and the new Henkel organization defined, the company's management enthusiastically recommended that Godefroid transition to lead the global semiconductor sales team.

�Luc is the ideal candidate for this role,� states Andreas Mader, Senior Vice-President and General Manager of Henkel's Semiconductor Group. �His in-depth knowledge of advanced materials combined with his management experience and proven leadership ability will, no doubt, spell success for Henkel's semiconductor organization.�

As Global Sales Director, Godefroid will oversee a 7-region sales team as well as direct the channel management initiatives for Henkel. Leveraging the company's leading presence in die attach paste technology, Godefroid expects to significantly grow sales among Henkel's variety of other product classes and build on the company's proven material sets philosophy. �I believe in a very short amount of time, our current die attach paste customers will realize the benefits of our complimentary materials technologies, which include high performance die attach films, advanced solder sphere products and next-generation mold compounds,� says Godefroid confidently. �The complete semiconductor portfolio and extensive knowledge

base that the new Henkel now offers is unmatched � we and our customers are already starting to see the benefits of our expanded organization.�

Godefroid studied languages and economics at the University in Ghent, Belgium. Prior to joining Henkel's electronics group in 2001, he worked in various industrial and automotive materials sales roles for Loctite. As Global Sales Director for Henkel's semiconductor business, Godefroid will be based in the company's Irvine, California headquarters and will report to Henkel Semiconductor Group Senior Vice-President and General Manager, Andreas Mader.
