We are excited to have him overseeing SanDisk's portion of this state-of-the-art NAND flash manufacturing complex. Dr. Koike's joining SanDisk to lead our Japan activities is a strong confirmation of SanDisk's long-term commitment to return semiconductor manufacturing in Japan to a world-class leadership status in the coming years." Mark Hornstra, SDKK representative director and managing director, will retain responsibility for SanDisk's retail and OEM business in Japan.
