Barkal Named VP of Quality for Kemet (posted 1/5/09)

KEMET Corp. recently announced that Susan (Sue) Barkal has been promoted to vice president of Quality and chief compliance officer. Her previous position with the company was director of Product Management and Central Planning. Barkal replaces Donald Aldworth, who retired at the end of 2008.

Barkal’s role will include all Quality and Corporate Compliance-related activity worldwide. The chief compliance officer is responsible for the oversight of all matters related to business ethics, both internally and externally. All Business Group Quality personnel will continue their local site reporting relationships. However, a dotted line reporting relationship will exist for all Quality-related personnel throughout the company’s three business groups. Barkal reports to Robert Arguelles, senior vice president of Operational Excellence, Quality and IT.

“We could not be more pleased to have Sue's leadership in this most important role,” said Arguelles. “Quality is our number one priority at KEMET. Sue brings nine years of valuable KEMET experience, and she knows and understands our customers, our products and our processes. Sue is a well-respected member of the KEMET organization. She has the complete confidence of our senior leadership team.”
