Daniel Armbrust, CEO of Sematech, a consortium of computer chip companies based at Albany’s College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, is leaving the company.
Ronald Goldblatt, vice president of Technology Strategy and Operations at Sematech, is replacing Armbrust. Goldblatt will assume his new role as CEO effective immediately.
“The Board’s decision to make a leadership change was made after ongoing consideration and a deliberative process, and was not based on any particular event,” said Erica McGill, spokesperson for Sematech, in an email.
Before Sematech, Goldblatt was a senior manager and engineer at IBM. He joined Sematech last August after spending 32 years at IBM in Yorktown Heights.
