Chip maker PMC-Sierra Inc. said Tuesday that it named Jonathan J. Judge, an existing board member and the CEO of First Data Corp., as chairman of its board, and it added Michael Klayko and Richard Nottenburg to the board.
Judge has been on PMC-Sierra's board since 2004, the company said. He heads its compensation committee and is on its audit committee. A former president and CEO of Paychex Inc., he earlier held senior management positions with IBM.
Klayko is CEO of Brocade Communications Systems Inc., and Nottenburg, a former CEO of Sonus Networks Inc., serves on the boards of Comverse Technology Inc., Verint Systems Inc. and Aeroflex Holding Corp.
PMC-Sierra's board now includes seven independent directors, the company said.
