Qorvo Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA (which provides core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and defense applications) has appointed Paul J. Fego as corporate vice president, global operations (effective 30 July). Reporting to president & CEO Bob Bruggeworth, he will assume responsibility for global operations including internal and external wafer fabrication, assembly & test technology and manufacturing.

“Paul brings us more than 38 years of semiconductor technology and manufacturing experience with several large and complex global companies,” says Bruggeworth. “He will play a critical role in helping us execute our strategic vision of consolidating our global operations organization into a highly efficient, collaborative team that helps drive our future growth and operational excellence,” he adds.

Fego was most recently VP & manager of the Worldwide Manufacturing group at Texas Instruments, where he managed all of its wafer fabrication, assembly and test operations in nine countries. He began his career at Texas Instruments as a manufacturing supervisor in 1980, rose through the ranks to become manufacturing manager and then left in 1989 to become operations director at ST Microelectronics. In 2002, he became president & chief operating officer at photomask maker Photronics Inc, until he returned to Texas Instruments in 2005 to head up its worldwide manufacturing. Fego has a bachelor’s degree from Rutgers University.

“I look forward to working with Bob and the Qorvo team to build a global operations team that helps drive future growth and operational excellence,” comments Fego.

In connection with Fego’s appointment, Steven R. Grant, VP of wafer fab technology and manufacturing, and James D. Stilson, VP of assembly & test technology and manufacturing, separately announced their intention to retire from the firm in the future. Both Grant and Stilson will continue in an advisory capacity and have committed to work closely with Fego to ensure a seamless transition of their respective responsibilities for wafer fabrication, assembly and test operations.

“Steve Grant and Jim Stilson have both made tremendous contributions to Qorvo… I want to thank them both for those contributions, especially for their leadership in building the operational infrastructure for the company following its creation from the combination of RFMD and TriQuint in 2015,” comments Bruggeworth. “Steve started with TriQuint Semiconductor in 2008 as vice president of worldwide operations, while Jim started with RFMD in 2004 as its vice president of operations.”
