Marvell Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRVL), a leader in data infrastructure semiconductor solutions, today announced that Willem Meintjes, who has served as Marvell’s Chief Accounting Officer and Treasurer since 2018, has been appointed Chief Financial Officer, effective January 20, 2023. Mr. Meintjes’ promotion follows the resignation of Jean Hu, who is departing the Company to pursue another professional opportunity, effective January 20, 2023.
“Jean has been an incredible partner over the past six years as we have transformed Marvell into a leader in data infrastructure semiconductor solutions,” said Matt Murphy, Marvell’s President and CEO. “Jean’s commitment to talent and development has also elevated the entire finance organization, as evidenced by many of the strong leaders – including Willem – she has helped mentor over the years. We thank her for her many contributions and wish her all the best with her next professional opportunity.”
Mr. Murphy continued, “Willem joined Marvell in 2016 right at the start of our transformation, and since then, he has been instrumental in building our corporate and financial foundations. He is well prepared to be taking on the role of CFO and his deep institutional knowledge of the Company, paired with his significant finance operations experience, will be pivotal as we continue our journey to be the industry’s premier data infrastructure semiconductor provider. We are proud of our thoughtful succession planning process that ensures this will be a smooth transition to the next generation of finance leadership.”
“I am thrilled to step into this role and continue working alongside Matt and the rest of the executive team,” said Mr. Meintjes. “We have tremendous momentum in our business as demand for data infrastructure continues to grow, and the opportunity in front of us is enormous. Marvell is on a clear trajectory for success and I look forward to helping the Company execute on its next phase of growth and innovation.”
“It has been a true privilege to work alongside Matt, Willem and the rest of the talented Marvell team,” said Ms. Hu. “As I depart Marvell for my next opportunity, I know the Company is well-positioned for continued success. Having worked closely with Willem, I can say with confidence that he is the right leader to drive the Company’s finance organization in the years to come.”
Mr. Meintjes joined Marvell in 2016 as Senior Vice President of Finance and was promoted to Chief Accounting Officer and Treasurer two years later. During his tenure at Marvell, Mr. Meintjes has held multiple roles across the Finance organization, including overseeing the FP&A, Treasury and Accounting functions. Prior to joining the Company, he served as Vice President and Corporate Controller at Newport Corporation and as Vice President and Corporate Controller at International Rectifier.
