At Maxim Integrated, we set high expectations for the ethical conduct of our leadership, employees, and suppliers. We believe that maintaining high standards of accountability and transparency is critical in the execution of our business. Since our founding, the diversity of experiences and backgrounds of our Directors have been important as we developed as a company and will continue to be a crucial element to our continued success.
With the exception of Tunç Doluca, Maxim Integrated’s Chief Executive Officer, all of the members of our Board of Directors are “independent directors” as that term is defined in the NASDAQ Stock Market Rules (“NASDAQ”). Our Board is committed to providing oversight of the company’s strategy and performance in an effective and constructive manner with the goal of representing the best interests of our stockholders.
