Vedanta-Foxconn Semiconductors Limited (VFSL), a joint venture between Foxconn and Vedanta Group, has appointed Mike Young as Senior Vice President, Project Management Office and Manufacturing Operations.
In this role, Mike will oversee the execution of manufacturing and operational processes as VFSL looks at setting up a state-of-the-art semiconductor fab in India.
