why these stupid arguing post, give some ocz facts!
Mr. Schmitt was appointed as the CEO in October 2012 and joins OCZ from PLX Technologies, Inc.,
Mr. Schmitt is currently on the board of the Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA), and prior to his leadership tenure at PLX, he acted as CEO of Legend Silicon, a privately funded Chinese terrestrial digital TV semiconductor company, in 2008.
Mr. Schmitt was CEO of Sipex, an analog semiconductor company that merged with Exar in 2007.
From 1999 to 2005, Mr. Schmitt was executive vice president of sales, marketing, and business development for Cypress Semiconductor where he led sales growth to over $1 billion, , while also overseeing the acquisition and integration of numerous companies.
He has served on private and public boards ranging from semiconductor, to solar and systems companies.
Mr. Schmitt also slept at the wheel while Ryan drove the company off a cliff. Upon becomming CEO he received a 700k cash bonus just for taking the job along w/ stock options... never mind OCZ was and still is in a cash crunch. After canning employees he lied to investors by saying the delayed earnings were "limited to one customer for a short time period".
Just the facts Ma'am. Go look it up.. its all on edgar
austin there is more to RS then just this. when he came here everyone was asking why would he quit PLX and work here? it is because that PLX sale fell through, was announced shortly after he jumped ship.
then you have the whole thing about OCZ buying PLX design team back in 2011??? RS said he had no part in it, but these guys don't have the best track record going. what would you think the odds of something shady happened here???
