MORRISVILLE, NC – Mostafa Aghazadeh of Intel has been elected chairman of the iNEMI board of directors.
Aghazedeh is corporate VP and director of Die Prep and Assembly Technology Development at Intel. He has served on the iNEMI board since 2013 and replaces Jean-Luc Pelissier of Universal Instruments, who has served as chair since 2018.
“Mostafa is a recognized leader in the technology industry with strong expertise, and he has been an omnipresent, very dedicated member of the board and a strong supporter of iNEMI for many years,” said Pelissier. “We have worked together closely, and I have always valued his insights and guidance. I have no doubt he will provide excellent leadership to iNEMI as chairman of the board. His knowledge of the industry and deep relationship network will be a tremendous asset to the organization.”
“Mostafa and I first worked together on the board when I was representing a member company and have continued to do so since I took over as iNEMI’s CEO,” said Marc Benowitz. “He is a strong advocate for iNEMI and collaborative research. He has not only helped guide iNEMI during his years on the board but has also been a strong ambassador for the consortium throughout the electronics manufacturing supply chain. I look forward to working with him even more closely as chairman. I also want to thank Jean-Luc for his tremendously valuable partnership and leadership as board chair and look forward to his continued contributions on the board.”
