I am originally from Scotland and poses a degree in mechanical and production engineering. I am 57 years old and have been working in the Semiconductor Industry in the area of Assembly and Test for 29 years, of which the past 24 years I have been located in Asia, working in Hong Kong, Philippines and Malaysia.
I fulfilled several engineering and senior management positions over this period. I am currently managing the Nexperia factory based in Seremban Malaysia, producing over 420 million per week of Bipolar discrete, logic and mosfet products. I am also responsible for managing all Nexperia subcontractors world- wide.
Prior to this position, I was Managing Director of Deca Technologies wafer level CSP facility in the Philippines and previous to that, I was VP of Operations for Carsem Semiconductors, responsible for all operations, covering two factories in Malaysia and one in China. I consider Malaysia my home and enjoy working in Asia immensely.
