Taipei, March 2 (CNA) Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) Chairman

From L-R: Mark Liu (劉德音), Morris Chang (張忠謀) and C.C. Wei (魏哲家)

Morris Chang (張忠謀) confirmed on Thursday that he will be succeeded by the company’s two presidents and chief executive officers, Mark Liu (劉德音) and C.C. Wei (魏哲家).

At Chang’s recommendation, the two men joined the board of directors of the world’s largest contract chip maker, increasing its membership from eight to 10, last month.

As Wei has been tipped to take over as chairman of the Taiwan Semiconductor Industry Association, he is widely seen as the front runner to replace Chang.

Responding to media inquiries about the issue after attending an event at National Chiao Tung University in Hsinchu, Chang said, “I have long said there will be two successors and they are Mark Liu and C.C. Wei.”     [FULL  STORY]
