Semtech Corp. has expanded its board of directors by two members and appointed veterans of the technology industry to fill the spots.

The Camarillo semiconductor and Internet-of-Things products developer appointed Paula LuPriore and Martin S.J. Burvill to its expanded board.


LuPriore is the chief executive and co-founder of WujiTech Inc., a cloud-based mobile and analytics business in Menlo Park. Prior to that she served as interim chief executive, chief operating officer and executive vice president at Asyst Technologies Inc., a former robotic automation, technology and manufacturing company in Fremont.


Burvill most recently was president of business markets at Verizon Communications. During his time at the telecom giant, he gained expertise in areas that include sales, marketing, commercial contracts, finance, IT systems, Internet of Things, cloud and data center services, and governance/risk/compliance.


Semtech Chief Executive Mohan Maheswaran said the company was pleased to welcome LuPriore and Burvill to the board.


“As the company continues to grow and evolve its business strategy to address the increasing demands for a smarter and more connected planet, both Paula and Martin will bring new and experienced perspectives on successful transformation strategies that will help the management team achieve our long-term goals,” Maheswaran said in a statement.


The board expansion announcement was made on Thursday. Shares of Semtech (SMTC) closed down on Friday by $2.03, or nearly 3.8 percent, to $52.17 on the Nasdaq, on a day when that market closed down 2.2 percent.
