GLOBAL Foundries Singapore senior vice president and general manager K.C. Ang (pic) has been appointed to serve the SEMI Singapore Regional Advisory Board (RAB) as its new chairman effective immediately.
Ang has held various senior leadership roles in Global Foundries, including recent positions at the company’s global manufacturing sites outside Singapore -- Fab 1 in Germany and Fab 8 in the United States, the company said in a statement.
Having worked in the industry for more than 25 years, Ang brings a wealth of foundry experience and expertise to SEMI Singapore RAB, an advisory group of industry executives chartered to drive SEMI’s mission in promoting growth and increasing visibility of the semiconductor industry in South-East Asia.
“The semiconductor industry in this region has developed into a vibrant and robust ecosystem today, and Singapore with her rich semiconductor heritage plays a leading role in the contribution,” said Ang.
“I look forward to sharing our foundry’s global knowledge and working with my industry peers to further promote and enhance the industry footprint within Singapore and regionally,” he added.
“On behalf of SEMI Singapore and its members, I am pleased to welcome KC Ang to the Board,” said
Terry Tsao, president of SEMI South-East Asia, said: “Alongside other distinguished industry leaders who joined our board as executive directors, I believe under the chairmanship of K.C. (Ang), the team will continue to spearhead activities that can help drive growth in the semiconductor industry for this region.”
Launched in March 2009, Global Foundries said it is now the second largest foundry in the world, providing a unique combination of advanced technology and manufacturing to more than 150 customers.
