The Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA) has renamed and expanded its leadership council for Europe. The new name is the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) Leadership Council, which reflects the multiple countries within EMEA that are playing a more significant and growing role within the industry.

The Council, which is comprised of key executives from leading semiconductor companies, will provide regional and global feedback to the organization’s Board of Directors by articulating regional challenges and identifying additional tools, resources and activities needed. These executives have been gathered from leading semiconductor companies, including Infineon Technologies AG, NXP Semiconductors, Nordic Semiconductor ASA, Wolfson Microelectronics, Dialog Semiconductor, CamSemi, picoChip Designs Ltd., DSP Group and CSR.

“The expansion of the EMEA Leadership Council demonstrates GSA’s continued commitment to global semiconductor companies,” said Jodi Shelton, GSA co-founder and executive director. “Regions face issues that are both similar to and unique from the semiconductor industry as a whole, and by working with GSA, Council members provide valuable insight and direction to help steer the GSA Board on matters related to EMEA.”
