GlobalFoundries (GF) of Santa Clara, CA, USA (one of the world’s largest semiconductor foundries, with operations in Singapore, Germany and the USA) has appointed Glenda Dorchak as an independent director on its board (bringing the total number of independent directors to five).

“Glenda brings tremendous end-user market experience, and we look forward to her contributions as we pivot to a more customer-centric and differentiated technology partner to the semi industry,” says chairman Ahmed Yahia Al Idrissi.

“To build the future we envision for GF, we need experienced industry leaders with the foresight and vision to guide our long-term growth strategy,” says CEO Tom Caulfield. “Glenda is a strong addition to GF’s board, with her proven record of executive and board leadership in semiconductor hardware and software businesses. Her extensive technical know-how in connected products and technologies will help us further position the company as a clear industry leader in differentiated foundry solutions,” he believes.

Dorchak has more than 30 years of technology industry leadership experience from a broad set of management and executive roles, starting at IBM Corp and including Intel Corp, Intrinsyc Software and Spansion. She serves as an independent director for public technology companies ANSYS, Mellanox Technologies and Quantenna Communications and is an advisor to OMERS Private Equity.
