MILPITAS, California, Feb. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SEMI, the global association connecting and representing the worldwide electronics manufacturing supply chain, today announced the appointment of Ajit Manocha as its president and CEO. He will succeed Denny McGuirk, who announced his intention to retire last October. The SEMI International Board of Directors conducted a comprehensive search process, selecting Manocha, an industry leader with over 35 years of global experience in the semiconductor industry.  Manocha will begin his new role on March 1 at SEMI's new Milpitas headquarter offices. "Ajit has a deep understanding of our industry's dynamics and the interdependence of the electronics manufacturing supply chain," said Y.H. Lee, chairman of SEMI's board of directors. "From his early days developing dry etch processes at AT&T Bell Labs, to running global manufacturing for Philips/NXP, Spansion, and, as CEO of GLOBALFOUNDRIES, Ajit has been formative to our industry's growth. Ajit is the ideal choice to drive our SEMI 2020 plan and beyond, ensuring that SEMI provides industry stewardship and engages its members to advance the interests of the global electronics manufacturing supply chain." "Beyond his experience leading some of our industry's top fabs, Ajit has long been active at SEMI and has served on boards of several global associations and consortia," said Denny McGuirk, retiring president and CEO of SEMI. "Ajit's experience in technology, manufacturing, and industry stewardship is a powerful combination. I'm very excited to be passing the baton to Ajit as he will continue to advance the growth and prosperity of SEMI's members." "I have tremendous respect for the work SEMI does on behalf of the industry," said Ajit Manocha, incoming president and CEO of SEMI. "I am excited to be joining SEMI at a time when our ecosystem is rapidly expanding due to extensive innovation on several fronts. From applications based on the Internet and the growth of mobile devices to artificial intelligence/machine learning, autonomous vehicles, and the Internet of Things, there is a much broader scope for SEMI to foster heterogeneous collaboration and fuel growth today than ever before. I am looking forward to leading the global SEMI organization as we strive to maximize value for our members across this extended global ecosystem." Manocha was formerly CEO at GLOBALFOUNDRIES, during which he also served as vice chairman and chairman of the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA).  Earlier, Manocha served as EVP of worldwide operations at Spansion. Prior to Spansion, Manocha was EVP and chief manufacturing officer at Philips/NXP Semiconductors. Manocha also held senior management positions within AT&T Microelectronics. He began his career at AT&T Bell Laboratories as a research scientist where he was granted several patents related to microelectronics manufacturing. Manocha holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Delhi and a master's degree in physical chemistry from Kansas State University.
