After a 33-year career, Intel Israel General Manager Maxine Fassberg announced today that she had decided to step down from the post. Yaniv Garty, currently Group General Manager, Wireless Connectivity Solutions at Intel Platform Engineering, has been appointed to replace her.
"This has been an amazing journey, fascinating and exciting, and I end it with a sense of satisfaction and pride," said Fassberg, who was also a vice president of Intel Inc. "The most important thing that I learned in 33 years at Intel is that there is no limit to human capabilities," she added, "We have demonstrated at Intel time after time that there is no challenge that is insurmountable, that there is no obstacle that is too high. I leave an amazing company, with amazing people, at the spearhead of technology, industry and social-community activity in Israel. I hand over the baton with full confidence to Yaniv Garty."
Fassberg's long career at Intel began in 1983 at the Intel Electronics plant in Jerusalem, as a lithography engineer. She managed the plant in Kiryat Gat (Fab 18) in 2000-2004, and was appointed manager of the new Intel Kiryat Gat plant (Fab 28) in 2006. She was appointed Intel Israel General Manager in June 2007.
Garty will officially take up the post of General Manager on January 15, 2017. Fassberg will stay on to support the handover until the end of March 2017.
"I am very proud to head Israel's largest and leading high-tech company," said Garty, "We are a company that creates technological trends and sets new standards. The activity in Israel has always been a mainstay of Intel's global business, and I shall ensure that it continues to be so for many years to come. I wish to thank Maxine for her decades of challenging work and for leading the company to extraordinary achievements in every sphere."
