After more than 4 years as chief executive officer of GLOBALFOUNDRIES (GF), Sanjay Jha is passing the baton to Dr. Thomas Caulfield, senior vice president and general manager.
Caulfield joined GF in 2014 and during his tenure, successfully built and ramped the company’s New York based 14nm production facility, which GF described as the ‘most advanced foundry facility’ and ‘one of the largest public-private partnerships in the United States’.
“It has been an incredible four years,” said Jha. “We have transformed GF into a trusted, reliable foundry for our global customer base.
“The acquisition of IBM’s microelectronics business has allowed us to independently develop leading-edge technology including 7nm, as well as expand our leadership positions in differentiated businesses such as RF, ASICS and the FDX platform.
“Tom Caulfield is the right person to build on this record of success and strengthen GF’s position as a leading foundry partner to the semiconductor industry.”

Jha has said he intends to work closely with GF’s shareholder, Mubadala Investment Company, to explore the development and build out of potential future systems businesses.
Caulfield has said he is ‘honoured to be given this chance to lead GF’.
