TI names Haviv Ilan as new President and CEO
Texas Instruments has announced that Haviv Ilan (pictured) will become the next president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Texas Instruments, effective April 1.
A 24-year veteran of TI, Haviv succeeds current president and CEO, Rich Templeton, who will remain chairman of the board.
“Haviv is an inspiring leader who is widely respected amongst our customers, employees and shareholders,” said Templeton. “He has a proven track record of delivering results, an intense focus on innovation and a passion to win, all of which make him an exceptional leader. The board and I are confident that Haviv is the right person to serve as TI’s next CEO and further strengthen the company for the long term.”
The transition is a well-planned succession that follows Haviv’s promotion to senior vice president in 2014, executive vice president and chief operating officer in 2020, and election to the board of directors in 2021.
Haviv has served in a variety of senior management roles at TI, including leading businesses in both analogue and embedded processing. He joined TI in 1999 through the acquisition of Butterfly, a wireless start-up company in Israel.
“I am honoured to lead TI during this amazing time for our company and our industry,” said Haviv. “The combination of our broad portfolio of products, strong foundation of manufacturing and technology, reach of market channels and diverse and long-lived positions all put TI in a unique class of companies. Our ambitions and values will continue to be integral to how we build TI stronger and when we are successful, our employees, customers, communities and shareholders all benefit.”
Haviv and Rich Templeton have worked closely together for many years, and they will transition president and CEO responsibilities over the next few months.
"I have had the privilege of working closely with Rich throughout my time at TI. He’s transformed the company into what it is today, and he’s led with an unwavering commitment to TI and our people,” said Haviv. “I look forward to continuing to work with him as chairman.”
