Silicon Labs has announced the board-approved, succession plan to elect company President Matt Johnson as the new chief executive officer when Tyson Tuttle retires on January 1, 2022.
“With our IoT vision, strategy and roadmap set and record-breaking financial results delivered, I decided now is the best time to announce our leadership transition plan,” says Silicon Labs CEO Tyson Tuttle.
“Matt Johnson has successfully managed our IoT business since 2018, and I’m confident he will drive sustainable growth, innovate on our leading wireless technology, and demonstrate our values – the foremost of which is to ‘do the right thing.’ Personally, I will continue to apply the same principle beyond Silicon Labs with my family, friends, and community.”
Tuttle joined Silicon Labs in 1997 as the 10th employee and has held a variety of roles in design engineering and product management, including CTO and COO, before being named CEO in 2012. He spearheaded the company’s focus on IoT, leveraging its wireless expertise to become one of the industry’s most respected market leaders. Tuttle will continue to serve the company as member of its Technical Advisory Board after he steps down as CEO.
