Asian American Executive Census February 12, 2009

Executive Summary
In 2000, the Asian community was 21.1% of the Bay Area population. This figure varies greatly by county, city, and ethnicity, but the center of gravity of a multi-ethnic Asian population has quietly shifted from urban San Francisco County (20% of Bay Area Asians), to sprawling, suburban Santa Clara County (35% of Bay Area Asians) driven by its technology-fueled job market.

In brief, this report finds that the Asian population continues to be underrepresented through the highest Bay Area executive levels, especially in Silicon Valley. The dynamics for change, however, are different for Asian Indian and Pacific Rim Asian executives.

The Asian Indian population appears to be successfully reaching the vice president levels and is, in the past decade, just beginning to make progress into the higher executive ranks. In a 2008 sample pool of 395 non-officer level vice-presidents disclosed by Silicon Valley companies, 8.6% are Asian Indian, as compared to 5.3% of the Silicon Valley population being Asian Indian. These gains at the executive level should be expected because the Asian Indian population in the U.S., especially in Silicon Valley, has experienced explosive growth. Asian Indians are now the second largest Asian group in the U.S. and have rapidly created a prominent cultural presence and business influence in Silicon Valley.

Asian Indians, however, remain underrepresented as corporate officers and board members. Since 1999, Asian Indian Bay Area board membership has only grown from 0.8% to 1.5% and Asian Indian corporate officers have grown from 0.7% to 3.1%.

With a longer ethnic presence in the Bay Area, Pacific Rim Asians outnumber Asian Indians as Bay Area corporate officers and board members, but this may not be true for long. There has been little change in the number of Pacific Rim Asians in the executive levels, with Pacific Rim Asians being 8.4% of the pool of non-officer executives, even though they are 24.8% of the Silicon Valley population. If there is any trend, it may be in the opposite direction, with fewer Pacific Rim Asian board members in 2008 than in 1999. In Silicon Valley, there has been no increase in Pacific Rim U.S. based corporate officers or board members in the past decade. In fact, if you exclude one outlier and executives heading up operations in Asia, there are now more Asian Indian officers than Pacific Rim Asian officers in the largest 16 Bay Area technology-based companies.

A Bay Area Corporate Census: Asian American Executives

Scope This report surveys the largest public corporations in the San Francisco Bay Area to assess Asian American representation at the executive management levels, analyze current and historical data (using publicly available sources), and identify possible trends. A specific focus will be the technology-based companies in Silicon Valley, where the Asians are 32% of the general population.

Terminology In this report, we shall use the demographic terms and definitions applied by the U.S. Census Bureau. The term “Asian” is defined as people of Asian descent, both American-born and foreign-born, and includes the ethnic categories: Asian Indians, Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese and “Other Asian”. “Asian Indian” is the Census category for people of Asian Indian descent and includes those from India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. “Asian Indian” is also commonly known as “South Asian”.

This report will also use the term “Pacific Rim Asian” to mean the non-Indian “Asian” ethnicities: Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese and “Other Asian”. It should be noted that the Census “Asian” category does not include Pacific Islanders. Instead, there is a separate category for “Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders” to include Native Hawaiian, Guamanian, Chamorro, Samoan, and “Other Pacific Islander”. For consistency, that group will not be included in this report’s “Asian” numbers.

Bay Area Asian Population The 2000 U.S. Census [1] found Asians to be 21.1% of the total population in the Bay Area counties of Santa Clara, Alameda, San Francisco, Contra Costa, San Mateo, and Marin. This is significantly higher than the overall figure for California (10.9%) and the other large urban counties of Los Angeles (11.9%) and San Diego (8.9%). Nationally, Asians were 3.6% of the U.S. population.

Table A: Asians in Bay Area Counties

The largest Bay Area ethnic populations were Chinese, Filipino, Vietnamese, and Asian Indian. As distributed in the Bay Area counties per Tables B-1 and B-2, these four ethnic groups comprised 84% of the Bay Area Asian population. The Japanese and Korean populations were much smaller (70,464 and 54,319) and are not included in these tables. San Francisco County was home to the largest group of Chinese, while Santa Clara had the largest concentrations of Filipinos, Vietnamese, and Asian Indians.

Understating the Asian Population in this Analysis The ethnic distribution analysis in this report understates the Asian population in both absolute numbers and percentages, possibly as much as 4% of the Bay Area population. Incremental census data exist but do not have enough details for an Asian ethnic breakdown, and we felt that use of inconsistent datasets would be confusing. In this section, we are presenting that data for completeness although these numbers will not be cited for ethnic breakdown analysis.

(1) The 2000 U.S. Census reports both an Asian and mixed-Asian population. Only the Asian population is subdivided into ethnic categories, so that this report uses the Asia-only number. For comparison, the total Bay Area county Asian population including the mixed-Asian segment is 23.0% vs. 21.1% for Asian-only. (2) The U.S. Census 2006 Estimate [2] reports the Asian population in the Bay Area counties increased from 21.1% in 2000 to 23.9% in 2006, with the largest growth occurring in Santa Clara

A Joint Project of Ascend and Asia Society

Page 5

Asian American Executive Census February 12, 2009 County, from 25.6% to 30.5%. Because the 2006 Estimate does not include the mixed-Asian population, the complete Asian population might be as high as 25% in the Bay Area. (3) This report does not include Bay Area Census numbers for “Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander”, an error of 0.5%. This population is often included in a ethnic category called “Asian and Pacific Islander” or “API”.

Key Observations: Asian Population Clusters In 2000, the Asian community was 21.1% of the Bay Area population, but this figure varies greatly by county, city, and ethnicity. More importantly, though, the center of gravity of a multi-ethnic Asian population had quietly shifted from urban San Francisco County (20% of the Bay Area Asians), to sprawling, suburban Santa Clara County (35% of Bay Area Asians) driven by its technology-fueled job market. Santa Clara County is already the home of the largest Asian population in the Bay Area and, if current population growth trends continue, will soon have the most Asians as a percentage of its population, surpassing San Francisco County in both metrics. In fact, in percentage terms, the cities of Milpitas, Cupertino, Fremont, and Sunnyvale have already surpassed San Francisco.

The 2000 Census reported for the Bay Area that: (1) the largest number of Asians was in Santa Clara County, the highest percentage in San Francisco County; (2) the largest number of Chinese was in San Francisco, the highest percentage in Cupertino; (3) the largest number of Filipinos was in San Jose, the highest percentage in Milpitas; (4) the largest number of Vietnamese was in San Jose, the highest percentage in Milpitas; and (5) the largest number of Asian Indians was in San Jose, the highest percentage in Fremont.

Bay Area Survey of Asian American Executives This report surveys the largest 25 Bay Area public companies to analyze recent (Fall 2008) Asian representation at the highest levels of corporate management and review historical data (1999) for any trends. All data was assembled from publicly available sources, including corporate web sites [3] and SEC filings [4] to enumerate three levels of executive management: (i) board members, (ii) corporate officers, and (iii) where available, additional vice-presidents. Table D lists the 25 companies whose corporate reports were studied:

Table D: Bay Area Corporate Survey (* technology-based company)

The management data was broken down into three demographic categories: (i) women, (ii) Asian Indian, (iii) Pacific Rim Asian. Executives responsible for operations in Asia were also noted. In almost all cases, corporate SEC filings in 1999 were used to compile historical data. In the instance where the company did not exist or 1999 data were not otherwise available, the oldest available data were used. In the case where there was a material merger, the oldest available data with the post-merger entity was used. All corporate filings used in this study are identified in the Data Sources Exhibit [3] at the end of this report.

Tables E-1 and E-2 lists the census information for the sample of Bay Area corporate boards from 1999 to 2008. Whereas Table E-1 lists all 25 Bay Area companies, Table E-2 only includes the 17 technologybased companies, almost all located in Silicon Valley, from Table D.

Table E-2: Bay Area Board of Directors Census – Technology Companies

The data in Tables E-1 and E-2 indicate that in the past decade, the Asian board representation has been essentially flat, with 5.4% in 1999 and 5.3% in 2008. The number of Pacific Rim Asians declined from 11 to 10, overall. Nevertheless, the Bay Area figures for Asian board members are much higher than the 2007 national figure, reported by the Committee of 100 [5], of 1.5% of all board seats in the Fortune 500. In addition, 64% of the sampled Bay Area companies had at least one Asian board member vs. 14.8% in the Fortune 500. Both results should be expected, however, because the Asian population nationally is only 4.9%, well below the Bay Area’s 23.9% estimate for 2006.

A surprising finding is that there has been no increase in the number of Asian board members in technology companies. Asians are typically overrepresented in a high-tech workforce, especially in an engineering-heavy Silicon Valley company. In addition, there is the growing gap between the numbers of Asians and women on Bay Area boards, even in the technology companies. Since 1999, there has been an increase in the number (11->24) and percentage (7.9%->14%) of women in high-tech boardroom while Asian participation fell from 7.9% to 6.4%.

Even more surprising is that Bay Area Asian board membership remained unchanged (11 board members) even though the number of Asian corporate officers doubled from 4.5% to 9.3%, as shown in Table F-1. This is a contrast to the situation with Bay Area women, where an increase in the number of women in the boardroom closely mirrors their increase in corporate officers. Women board membership grew from 10.9% to 15.6% while women officers increased from 11.0% to 14.5%.

Table F-2: Corporate Officers Census – Technology Companies

The number of Asian officers doubled, from 4.5% to 9.3%. Three of the new Pacific Rim Asian corporate officers were located in the Asia/Pacific region, so that there were only 6 additional Pacific Rim Asian officers in the U.S.

Patterns for Asian Indians and Pacific Rim Asians Since 1999, Asian Indian Bay Area board membership has grown from 0.8% to 1.5% and Asian Indian corporate officers have grown from 0.7% to 3.1%. These gains at the executive level, although modest, should be expected because the Asian Indian population in the U.S. and in Silicon Valley, in particular, has experienced explosive growth. The U.S. population of Asian Indians doubled (106%) in the 19902000 decade and continued at a 38% growth rate through 2005. Asian Indians are now the second largest Asian ethnic group in the United States and have rapidly created a prominent cultural presence and business influence in Silicon Valley [6]. However, this progress has not yet crossed into the highest corporate levels, as they are only 1.5% of Bay Area board seats.

With a longer Pacific Rim Asian presence in the Bay Area population, it is no surprise to find more Pacific Rim Asians than Asian Indians as Bay Area corporate officers and board members at this time. The 2008 figures show Pacific Rim Asians seemingly making good progress at the highest corporate levels in the Bay Area, with a growing number of Pacific Rim Asian corporate officers (3.8% -> 6.2%) from 1999 to

A Joint Project of Ascend and Asia Society

Page 9

Asian American Executive Census February 12, 2009 2000, and Pacific Rim Asians with 3.8% of board seats. However, this picture is incomplete and a little misleading.

A more accurate perspective can be obtained by taking out (i) those Asian corporate officers who with operational responsibilities in Asia (e.g. Vice President of Sales/Asia) and (ii) SYNNEX as an outlier. Founded by Bob Huang, SYNNEX has 42% of its corporate officers and 37% of its board as Pacific Rim Asians. With those two adjustments, the figures show that Pacific Rim Asians grew in the number of corporate officers (2.2% -> 5.4%), but declined in board membership (3.4% -> 2.8%). In technology companies, the picture is even worse, with no growth in corporate officers in the U.S. (4) and board members (6) since 1999. In fact, there are only 4 Pacific Rim Asians as corporate officers outside Asia in the other (excluding SYNNEX) 16 Bay Area technology companies; and there are now more Asian Indians as Silicon Valley corporate officers outside Asia.

The Pipeline of Asian American Executives Of the 25 Bay Area companies reviewed, 11 companies included data on their corporate web sites identifying 416 additional vice presidents below the corporate officer level. This data is listed in Table G. However, Table G includes 14 Pacific Rim Asian vice presidents responsible for operations in Asia.

An adjusted Table H lists only those Bay Area vice presidents in the U.S. It is certain that this sample of executives is not the entire population of vice presidents, even within those disclosing companies. It is likely, however, that these are the more senior executives in those companies. Although tables G and H are not a comprehensive list of all vice presidents in the Bay Area, this is a large enough sample so that reasonable observations about the executive pipeline can be made.

Table I-2: High-Tech – Corporate Executive Pipeline

Using the summary Tables I-1 and I-2, we can observe that the Asian population is generally underrepresented through all Bay Area executive levels, but particularly in Silicon Valley, where the population is 30.2%. The Asian Indian population appears to be successfully reaching the vice president levels and has made some progress in the past 10 years in the higher executive ranks. However, Asian Indians are still underrepresented as corporate officers and board members. The Pacific Rim Asian population has not been making any progress in Silicon Valley or the Bay Area in reaching executive levels. If anything, there appears to be movement in the other direction, with fewer Pacific Rim Asians as corporate officers and board members in the Bay Area.
