Roy has been with Rudolph and predecessor companies, August Technology and Semiconductor Technologies and Instruments (STI), for the past eight years. He has held several senior management and marketing positions, and more recently has been involved in the development of Rudolph’s back-end growth. Roy led the integration of RVSI into Rudolph’s Inspection business unit as well as the integration of Applied Precision semiconductor products and technology into the firm’s global infrastructure.

“Inorganic growth through mergers and acquisitions is one of three initiatives we are pursuing to deliver on our vision for growth, and Rudolph is positioned to be a consolidator as our semiconductor capital equipment industry matures,” reckons CEO Paul McLaughlin. “Roy’s extensive background in inspection and instrumentation, combined with his keen knowledge of our customers, make him uniquely qualified to help execute our ‘roll-up’ strategy in this new position.” 

Roy spent 18 years in management and engineering roles with Texas Instruments, where he was elected to become senior member of the technical staff. He holds a Bachelor in Technology from Indian Institute of Technology, a MS in Math Sciences and a MA in Marketing and Management Sciences, both from the University of Texas at Dallas. Roy is an elected senior member at the Society of Mechanical Engineers, Machine Vision Association.
