IPC-Association Connecting Electronics Industries® recently announced that Dennis “Denny” P. McGuirk has resigned from his position as president and CEO to accept a new position as president and CEO of SEMI®, a global industry association serving the manufacturing supply chains for the microelectronic, display, and photovoltaic industries. His last day at IPC will be November 1.

“Denny has been a tremendous leader and a great friend to our industry,” said Robert Ferguson, chairman of the IPC board of directors. “I am sure I speak for the entire board in saying that he will be sadly missed. IPC is in a great position thanks to his hard work and dedication.”

In his 12-year tenure at IPC, McGuirk steered the organization through two difficult recessions and reshaped IPC into a global organization. When he joined IPC in 2000, the organization had 2,500 members, with less than 25% located outside of the U.S. Under his leadership, IPC’s reach and services significantly expanded onto new continents. Today, IPC has more than 3,000 members, 38% of whom are located outside the U.S., and its programs and services are delivered globally.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed serving as president and CEO of IPC during this exciting and challenging time,” McGuirk said. “The involvement and interaction with the board of directors, our staff and, most importantly, our members around the world has been personally and professionally rewarding for me. I am confident the organization will go on to even greater success in the future and I look forward to following the progress of the organization and all of the friends I’ve made along the way.”
