Dr. John Ganjei, advanced technology manager for the MEES Electronics Materials group, has decided to retire from MacDermid Enthone at the end of April.
John graduated from Cornell University earning his PhD in Analytical Chemistry. He started his career at the US Naval Research Lab in Washington, DC. He later joined ICI followed by Hercules where he gained valuable technical expertise in dryfilm photoresists.
John then became part of the MacDermid organization upon the acquisition of the photoresist business from Hercules. While working at MacDermid, as Global Director of Electronic Specialties, John spearheaded many successful programs in dryfilm, liquid imaging and MultiBond innerlayer bonding technologies. Most recently, John held the position of Advanced Technology Manager for the Electronics Materials group where he implemented a successful strategy to penetrate the semiconductor packaging market with products designed to achieve improved package reliability.
John is well known and respected within the electronics industry. He holds numerous patents and has been active in many industry trade organizations including IPC, SMTA, IEEE, and HDPUG where he has written and presented papers and participated in committees writing industry specification. We congratulate John and wish him a long and happy retirement.
Bruce Lee will be John’s successor and take on the position of Technology Manager for Electronics Materials. Bruce came to MacDermid Enthone in 2005 as a Specifications Manager for our OEM & Assembly Applications team. He used his extensive experience in PCB fabrication to gain specifications from end users and tier 1s. For the last 8+ years he served as Applications Manager for the photovoltaics strategic initiative, where he gained expertise, identified portfolio gaps, and guided new product development. In addition to his new position, Bruce will continue to engage in photovoltaic projects. He will also take on responsibilities in electronics packaging, molded interconnects devices, LED and other projects within the purview of Electronics Materials.
