DuPont Increases Industry Involvement in Semiconductor Materials

Commitment Connects Leadership to New Roles as DuPont Presence in Semiconductor Materials Expands

DuPont today announced that John E. Odom, president, EKC Technology, a unit of DuPont Electronic Technologies, has been selected as vice chairman of the SEMI® Chemicals and Gas Manufacturers Group. (CGMG). The group focuses on the interests of SEMI® members who produce, package and/or distribute chemicals or gases used in semiconductor applications. The selection follows a number of recent events that mark increasing involvement by DuPont leadership as the company continues to expand its presence in the semiconductor industry.

"It’s an honor to have been selected and I look forward to my involvement in this important aspect of SEMI®’s work," said Odom. "DuPont is firmly committed to the semiconductor materials market, and we’re making an increasingly important contribution. The efforts of SEMI® and the CGMG are essential to helping suppliers and their customers confront the challenges facing them in the semiconductor industry."

Odom’s selection is one of a number of recent examples of DuPont’s growing involvement in the semiconductor materials industry. In January, David B. Miller, vice president and general manager of DuPont Electronic Technologies joined the SEMI North American Advisory Board and serves on the Public Policy subcommittee. Jerry Coder, consultant and president emeritus, DuPont Semiconductor Fabrication Materials, will remain active on the SEMI® Board of Directors and in helping set the strategic direction of DuPont Electronic Technologies. TV Srinivasan, president of the Hitachi DuPont Microsystems joint venture, was named as global business director, DuPont Semiconductor Fabrication Materials. Working with Miller, Coder, Odom and others, TV will continue to extend and strengthen the connections between the products and the people in DuPont who contribute to the growing semiconductor industry.
