Stanley T. Myers is to retire this yearAfter 24 years as a SEMI board member and 15 years as president and CEO of the trade association, Stanley T. Myers is to retire this year. Myers has been involved more than 50 years in the semiconductor industry. SEMI is to undertake and executive search for Myers replacement.

“Stan is a driving force at the helm of our industry association,” said Rick Wallace, CEO of KLA-Tencor Corporation, who serves as chairman of the SEMI Board of Directors. “Under his leadership, SEMI has grown and diversified to meet the changing needs of member companies that participate in one of the world’s most complex and sophisticated high-tech industries. As Stan anticipates the next chapter of his life, we appreciate his thoughtful and deliberate framework for a succession plan.”

Prior to his appointment as SEMI president and CEO, Myers worked for 17 years at Siltec where he served as president and CEO until 1985. In 1986, Siltec was acquired by Mitsubishi Materials Corporation. Siltec changed its name to Mitsubishi Silicon America (MSA) and Myers continued as president and CEO until he moved to SEMI in 1996. Prior to Siltec/MSA, Myers worked for Monsanto Corporation for 18 years.

Myers is chairman of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Advisory Board to MATEC (Maricopa Advanced Technology Education Center). He also is a member of the Engineering Advisory Board to the School of Engineering, San Jose State University.

In February 2008, Myers was inducted into the Silicon Valley Engineering Hall of Fame.
