23 November 2022 News


Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA) has proudly announced that it will honour technologist, business leader and ardent supporter of STEM education, Steve Sanghi, executive chair of Microchip Technology, with its prestigious Dr. Morris Chang Exemplary Leadership Award at this year’s Annual Awards Celebration on 8 December 2022.

Established in 1999, the Dr. Morris Chang Exemplary Leadership Award is the highest achievable honour through the GSA, with recipients comprised of influential, distinguished individuals in semiconductors and related ecosystem. This honour recognises individuals for their exceptional contributions, exemplifying how their vision and global leadership have transformed and elevated the entire semiconductor industry.

“Steve is a leader and visionary in our industry. Naming him as this year’s Dr. Morris Chang Exemplary Leadership Award is based on his exceptional business acumen and far-reaching respect among the technology industry and business community,” said Jodi Shelton, co-founder and CEO of GSA. “I had the pleasure of working closely with Steve during his tenure on GSA’s board of directors and I am delighted to honour Steve’s distinguished career and add to his legacy.”

Sanghi currently serves as executive chair of Microchip and chairman of the board of directors. Spending more than 30 years as Microchip’s president and CEO, he led the company’s transformation while nurturing its culture and values, thus creating an industry stalwart that employs more than 20 000 people with a market cap of nearly $43 billion.

Sanghi’s foundation of long-term success for Microchip involved fostering employee empowerment along with his commitment to and investment in creating a strong leadership pipeline and promoting from within. Several members of the leadership team at Microchip started with the company as interns and new college graduates, and today are vice presidents and senior vice presidents. The average tenure of the 35 officers of the company is 24 years, and 27 of them were promoted from within Microchip to their current position.
