Paul Fego to Head Global Operations at Qorvo

Qorvo has appointed Paul J. Fego, 61, as corporate vice president of global operations. As of July 30, 2018, Mr. Fego will report to Bob Bruggeworth, president and chief executive officer of Qorvo, and will assume responsibility for Qorvo’s global operations, including internal and external wafer fabrication, assembly and test technology and manufacturing.

Mr. Fego most recently served as vice president and manager of the Worldwide Manufacturing group at Texas Instruments, where he managed all of its wafer fabrication, assembly and test operations in nine countries. Mr. Fego started his career at Texas Instruments as a manufacturing supervisor in 1980, rose quickly through the ranks to become manufacturing manager and then left in 1989 to become operations director at ST Microelectronics. In 2002, he became president and chief operating officer at Photronics, Inc., a global leader in photomask solutions for companies that manufacture semiconductors, flat panel displays and other electronic components, until he was recruited to return to Texas Instruments in 2005 to head up its worldwide manufacturing. Mr. Fego has a bachelor’s degree from Rutgers University.

In connection with the appointment of Mr. Fego, Steven R. Grant, who has served as vice president of Qorvo’s wafer fab technology and manufacturing, and James D. Stilson, who has served as vice president of Qorvo’s assembly and test technology and manufacturing, separately announced their intention to retire from the company in the future. Both Mr. Grant and Mr. Stilson will continue with the company in an advisory capacity after Mr. Fego commences employment and have committed to work closely with Mr. Fego to ensure a seamless transition of their respective responsibilities for wafer fabrication, assembly and test operations.
