Brian Crutcher New Chief COO At TI
Texas Instruments have promoted Brian Crutcher to chief operating officer (COO).
Crutcher, 44, is a 21-year veteran of the company and has been executive vice president responsible for all business and sales operations, Kilby Labs and information technology. As COO, he adds oversight of TI's global technology and manufacturing operations to his current duties.
"Brian has an impressive track record of operational and strategic accomplishments," said Rich Templeton, TI's chairman, president and chief executive officer. "Over the past five years, he has driven important business results and strategic initiatives that have made the company stronger. Brian is an exceptionally talented leader whose intelligence, candor, discipline and competitive drive inspire those around him. I look forward to continuing our work together to consistently deliver great new innovations for our customers and sustainably grow free cash flow for our shareholders."
Crutcher joined TI in 1996 and during his first 10 years served in a variety of leadership roles in the sales organization, including vice president in charge of the Americas. He later moved into business operations and at separate times led each of the company's two business segments, Analog and Embedded Processing.
Crutcher earned a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering from the University of Central Florida and a Master of Business Administration from the University of California, Irvine. He believes in inspiring next generations of engineers through philanthropy and hands-on mentoring, and in 2012 was honored with a Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of Central Florida.
AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!
AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
