September 2008, Antwerpen/Belgium -- Lou Hermans, co-founder and Chairman of the Board of CMOSIS NV, Antwerpen, Belgium, has been appointed Vice President of Marketing and Sales from September, 2008.

After the sale of the company to Cypress Semiconductor Corporation in August 2004 Hermans remained at Cypress until March 2006.

Guy Meynants, CEO of CMOSIS, describes the step as strategic: 'In his new role, Lou will propel the worldwide business of CMOSIS. His vast experience will not only help us achieve higher turnover with our solutions; Lou also has a deep understanding of the demands of future markets. I'm glad we were able to land Lou Hermans for this job.'
