The Global 450mm Consortium (G450C), first announced by Governor Andrew Cuomo in September 2011, and headquartered at the SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) in Albany, New York today proudly announced the appointment of Cheng-Chung Chien of TSMC as General Manager (GM) of Internal Operations.
"We are at an exciting juncture in the transition to 450mm wafer technology, and we are extremely pleased to have Cheng-Chung Chien join the G450C consortium leadership team," said Dr. Alain Kaloyeros, CEO of CNSE. "Mr. Chien has established himself as a leader in innovation and technology who doesn't just meet expectations, but exceeds them. We are excited by what his appointment means for the future of the G450C program and welcome him to the team."
"I am humbled and excited by the appointment to lead this consortium of industry leaders as we plan for the final stages in the transition to 450mm wafer technology," said Mr. Chien. "There are few opportunities to revolutionize an entire industry while serving the growing demands of the global tech community. I look forward to celebrating many successes with the G450C, and achieving them with efficiency and affordability."
Mr. Chien joined TSMC in 2000 and brings three decades of nanoelectronics industry leadership to G450C. He is currently the director of TSMC's Fab 3 where he amassed an impressive record of driving down production costs while improving operational efficiency. He has received numerous leadership awards, including the 100th Republic of China National Excellence Management Award in 2011 for "Outstanding Production Manager." Prior appointments include Assistant Vice President at Quanta Display and Deputy Director at Vanguard International Semiconductor. Mr. Chien attended National Tsing Hua University in Taiwan where he received a Master's Degree in Physics.
This appointment reaffirms TSMC's commitment to the G450C program and the outstanding work being done by the team in CNSE in Albany. Mr. Chien will join the program mid-year to allow a seamless transition of duties.
