"The strength and commitment of our Board is a great advantage for SEMATECH and we welcome Bill to his role as chairman. His extensive industry experience, familiarity with the progressive developments of our industry in Albany, NY and his leadership and insights are valuable to SEMATECH and our members," said Dan Armbrust, SEMATECH's president and CEO.

"I am honored to serve as chairman of SEMATECH's board," said Rozich.

Rozich, who begins his new role July 1, most recently served as the director of semiconductor operations of IBM Corporation at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering in Albany, New York. He has more than 30 years of semiconductor fabrication operations experience and extensive interactions with equipment and materials suppliers, as well as leading complex alliances.

Rozich began his career at IBM in 1974 and progressed through a variety of assignments in equipment engineering, manufacturing technology and alliance management. He previously served on SEMATECH's Executive Technical Advisory Board from 1994 through July 2006, the I300I Executive Steering Committee from 1995 until December 2000, and as a SEMATECH board member from 2006 to 2010.

Rozich received his bachelor's degree in biology and chemistry from Fordham University and Marist College, as well as a Master of Arts degree in chemistry from State University of New York at New Paltz.


For over 25 years, SEMATECH®, the international consortium of leading semiconductor device, equipment, and materials manufacturers, has set global direction, enabled flexible collaboration, and bridged strategic R&D to manufacturing.
