Milpitas, CA | Posted on March 15th, 2018

Mr. Barnhart joins Nanometrics from Cymer LLC, an ASML company, where he has served as senior vice president, global operations since 2010. His substantial operations experience in the semiconductor manufacturing industry began nearly 30 years ago, when he joined Applied Materials as a manufacturing manager in etch tool production. During his 17 years at Applied Materials, Mr. Barnhart served in various operational leadership roles throughout the company, including as chief operating officer of the etch products business group, managing director of corporate asset services, and strategic worldwide account operations general manager. Mr. Barnhart left Applied Materials in 2006 to serve in senior operational roles at Johnson & Johnson and AREVA Solar before returning to the semiconductor industry at Cymer in 2010. While at Cymer, Mr. Barnhart envisioned and built $1B-capable infrastructure and achieved a near-doubling in revenues.

Prior to Applied Materials, Mr. Barnhart was an engineering division officer in the U.S. Navy, where he ensured operational reactor regulatory compliance as a chemistry and radiological controls officer. He completed the U.S. Naval Nuclear Power postgraduate school with honors, earned accelerated promotion, and was evaluated in the top 1% of all Navy peers. Mr. Barnhart holds an MBA from the Walter A. Haas School of Business at the University of California at Berkeley, and a B.S. in electrical engineering from Washington State University’s College of Engineering in Pullman.

Commenting on Mr. Barnhart’s appointment, Dr. Pierre-Yves Lesaicherre, president and chief executive officer of Nanometrics said, “With a wealth of operational leadership experience, Jim is a tremendously strong addition to the Nanometrics management team. We are very pleased to welcome a senior operations executive of his caliber, as we improve our focus and execution driving operational excellence throughout the company during this important revenue growth period for Nanometrics.”
