Hemlock Semiconductor has named Andrew Tometich as its new president. Tometich will start his new role immediately, where he will work alongside current chief executive officer Richard Doornbos.
“Hemlock Semiconductor’s rapid expansion in the past five years – and our expectation of continued growth – requires expanded leadership as we solidify our position as one of the global leaders in the solar and semiconductor industries,” Doornbos said. “Andy’s demonstrated capacity for strategic thinking and his broad, deep and diverse experience in business management will help to assure our continued success.”
Tometich, who holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Notre Dame and an MBA from Northwestern University, arrives at Hemlock from Dow Corning, where he worked for 22 years and most recently served as business vice president of strategic feedstocks for the company’s Core Products Business. He has served on Hemlock Semiconductor’s board of directors since 2010.
“Rick’s [Doornbos] leadership during this period of unprecedented growth has driven Hemlock Semiconductor into a new era,” Tometich said. “I am eager and privileged to have the opportunity to work alongside Rick and the entire Hemlock Semiconductor team.”
