"Ron brings a wealth of finance skills and capabilities that can help take Nanometrics to the next level of our growth, including large company experience, international tax strategy and M&A. We had the opportunity to consider numerous highly-qualified candidates for the CFO position through an exhaustive search, which has culminated in the selection of a top-level finance professional with skills particularly well matched to our needs going forward."

"Finally, I'd like to express my gratitude to Jim Moniz for his substantial contributions toward Nanometrics achieving new levels of financial performance and operational excellence. Jim will stay on with the company through April 1st and work with Ron to ensure a seamless transition of our financial leadership," added Dr. Stultz.
