LSI Corporation has appointed Jeff Richardson to the newly-created position of executive vice president and chief operating officer. He will oversee marketing, engineering and manufacturing. Richardson will continue to report to Abhi Talwalkar, LSI president and chief executive officer.
‘Over the past six years, Jeff has been instrumental in helping drive the transformation of LSI to become a highly-focused leader in enabling the storage and networking markets,’ said Abhi Talwalkar. Richardson joined LSI in June 2005, and most recently served as executive vice president of the company's Semiconductor Solutions Group.

The company also announced that Phil Bullinger, executive vice president and general manager of the LSI Engenio Storage Group, will be leaving the company in May 2011, following the expected completion of the company’s sale of its external storage systems business to NetApp.
