Sonny Cave Bio

Sonny is the founding general counsel and corporate secretary at ON
Semiconductor since the 1999 spin-out from Motorola Inc. He also holds
the titles of executive vice president, chief compliance and ethics
officer, chief risk officer and corporate secretary. His extensive legal
and business experience spans over 30 years, including seven years with
Motorola, where he was promoted to senior environmental, health and
safety counsel, and led a team of legal professionals supporting all of
Motorola’s worldwide operations. During Sonny’s last two years with
Motorola, he was an expatriate stationed in Geneva, Switzerland, where
he served as regulatory affairs director for Motorola’s Semiconductor

business and operations into emerging markets such as China and Eastern

and Maine, as well as in China, Belgium, Japan, Singapore, South Korea
and Taiwan. Under Sonny’s leadership, ON Semiconductor revitalized its
corporate compliance and ethics program in 2004, using a model where
individual compliance and ethics liaisons are appointed at every
