"We are excited to welcome Tunç Doluca as SIA's 2017 Chair and Mark Durcan as SIA's 2017 Vice Chair," said John Neuffer, SIA President and CEO. "Both Tunç and Mark have tremendous technical backgrounds and each has more than three decades of experience driving research and innovation on behalf of their companies and our industry. With their many accomplishments, they will provide strong leadership for SIA and the industry in 2017."

Tunç Doluca joined Maxim in 1984 as a design engineer and was named the company's Vice President of R&D in 1993. In 2007, Tunç became the second CEO in the company's history. During his tenure as CEO, he strengthened Maxim's commitment to building a successful portfolio of innovative products by focusing product development around end market applications. He led the transition to a more flexible hybrid production model to improve overall manufacturing execution, and played a critical role in making Maxim one of the first analog companies to transition to 300mm wafer technology. Under Tunç's leadership, Maxim has become a leading supplier of innovative analog, power, and mixed-signal products for new markets and applications that are making a positive impact on the world. Tunç holds a BSEE degree from Iowa State University and an MSEE degree from the University of California, Santa Barbara.

"The semiconductor industry drives innovation and growth across the United States and around the world by enabling the systems and products we use to work, communicate, manufacture, and make new scientific discoveries," said Doluca. "Now more than ever before, SIA's work to advance manufacturing and semiconductor research, expand markets, and defend against threats is vital. I look forward to contributing to that effort in 2017 as SIA chair and helping to ensure the U.S. semiconductor industry remains the world's most innovative sector."

A 32-year company veteran, Mark Durcan rose from his first role as a Process Integration Engineer to Chief Technical Officer, President, and, ultimately, CEO in 2012. Under his leadership, the company has delivered the continual innovation that makes Micron one of the top memory manufacturers in the world. Mark is a key technical decision maker guiding Micron's next-generation technologies to market. He is also the Chairman of the Micron Technology Foundation, Inc., which was formed to advance STEM education and support civic and charitable institutions in the communities where Micron has facilities. Mark earned both bachelor's and master's degrees in chemical engineering from Rice University.

"It is an honor to serve as 2017 SIA vice chairman," said Durcan. "Serving as the voice and chief advocate for our industry, SIA unites around common challenges and seeks to advance government policies that promote U.S. competitiveness and remove barriers to innovation. I look forward to working alongside my colleagues to promote the semiconductor industry's policy priorities in the coming year."
