Day 2 Plenary: Facility Leadership Panel

The construction of new fabs in the semiconductor industry is unparalleled. With 71 new fabs starting construction between 2022 and 2023, multiple companies are looking at how they can build upon traditional facility management techniques to unlock the true potential of Facility 2.0. How will we get there? And who will lead the way?

Alongside the growth of the sector comes the growth of those working within it. Facilities are navigating new technological and environmental landscapes, which can only be achieved with the right talent working in this fast-growing sector. Join our facilities’ executives as they talk about the operational challenges they currently face, their roles as leaders, and how they see their facilities growing in the future. 

  • John Painter, Principal, Pure Facilities Solutions LLC (Moderator)
  • Tom Huang, Director of Facilities Engineering, GlobalFoundries
  • Zac Rosenbaum, Facilities Director, Samsung Austin Semiconductor
  • Bobby Palmer, Director, Facilities, Wolfspeed

Roundtables - 3 x 25-Minute Rotations
Sponsored by:

The UPM 2023 roundtable session is a platform to exchange ideas and insights and to engage with one another in a more conversational setting. Each roundtable moderator will lead 3 x 25-minute discussion groups.

  1. Choose a topic and join the table.
  2. Meet the host and table guests.
  3. Participate in a conversational, face-to-face exchange of ideas.
  4. After 3 table rotations, you’ll leave the session with a better understanding of challenges in the sector, a new set of contacts, and a new idea to take back to colleagues.
