Rubicon appoints former MEMC veteran as chief operating officer

Rubicon Technology Inc of Bensenville, IL, USA (which makes monocrystalline sapphire substrates and products for the LED, semiconductor and optical industries) has appointed Hany Tamim as chief operating officer, responsible for all global manufacturing operations.

Tamim will be based in Malaysia and report to CEO Bill Weissman. The COO role is a consolidation of two senior management positions and will provide greater coordination of manufacturing operations at a lower cost, reckons the firm.

Tamim has experience in managing crystal growth and wafer manufacturing operations in both Malaysia and the USA, including 24 years with SunEdison (formerly MEMC), where he had leadership roles in global cost management, plant management and process engineering. He has Bachelor and Master of Science degrees in Engineering from the University of North Carolina.

"His experience in managing crystal growth and wafer manufacturing operations in both the US and Malaysia are specifically relevant to the needs of our operations today as we implement changes in technology to improve our product cost," comments Weissman.
