The semiconductor industry is undergoing a significant realignment as manufacturing technology pushes the boundaries of physics, and control of the supply chain becomes a focus of geopolitical competition. Still, semiconductor firms are continuously innovating in this environment as cloud computing, artificial intelligence, autonomous mobility, 5G, and IoT require the hardware to power a new generation of intelligent systems. As such, major players are adjusting strategies to the changing landscape while dramatically increasing investments to build capabilities and stretch the limits of Moore's Law.
In this pivotal phase, companies need visionary, innovative, and agile leaders who are also capable of navigating geopolitical complexity. Along with a deep technology anchor, semiconductor leaders must possess a strong understanding of downstream market trends, dynamic global supply chains, and government relations.
