As the IC industry moves into another cycle, Silicon Strategies has complied and selected its own list of "20 Executives to Watch in 2005."
Editors from the fast-moving online site have posted individual articles profiling 20 executives from the semiconductor, chip-equipment, IC-packaging and materials industries. (See below for links to the articles.)
The 20 executives whose names have been included in our hot list and who appear on the site are changing the game and calling the shots for their respective sectors. They are the entrepreneurial leaders and visionaries behind fast-moving companies both large and small. And for better or worse, many of these executives are also under the microscope, thereby making them the people to watch in the industry.
We are pleased to present Silicon Strategies' 20 Executives to Watch in 2005.
