SEMATECH Names Daniel Armbrust as President and CEO

Austin, TX and Albany, NY | Posted on November 16th, 2009

Armbrust, 47, most recently served as Vice President of 300mm Semiconductor Operation, where he was responsible for the operation of IBM's 300mm fab in East Fishkill, New York, which develops leading edge technologies with IBM's alliance partners and manufactures products for IBM and OEM customers. Previously Armbrust held a variety of positions at IBM related to process development, manufacturing, and client engagement.

Michael Polcari, SEMATECH's newly appointed Chairman of the Board, said that the SEMATECH board selected Armbrust to lead the consortium based on his track record of leadership and execution in developing leading edge technologies, directing fab operations, and managing complex alliances.

"Our search for a new leader for SEMATECH was focused and thorough," said Polcari. "Dan came to our attention because of his proven ability to lead top performing teams, his strong credentials in both R&D and manufacturing, and his experience in driving strategic alliances. Dan has the right blend of talents for the job, and we are delighted to welcome him to SEMATECH."

Armbrust said, "SEMATECH is one of the world's leading consortia, with a proud history, outstanding talent and significant technical innovations in many of its programs. SEMATECH has played a pivotal role in our industry, and it's a great honor to join its leadership team and have the opportunity to build on its success."

Armbrust will assume his new duties immediately, replacing Michael R. Polcari, who has been SEMATECH's President and CEO since February 2003. Polcari succeeds OB Bilous as Chairman of SEMATECH's Board of Directors.
