Meet LBC's Founder, Laurent Bosson:
Laurent Bosson is a retired senior manager with 47 years of worldwide management experience. He has 25 years experience in senior management including: Executive VP in charge of WW RD & Manufacturing operations, CEO of ST Microelectronics Americas ('92 to '96) and from 1996 - 2010 Chairman Of the Board for the same subsidiary.
Laurent has extensive wide range of operational experiences, including production, maintenance, product engineering and manufacturing engineering, sites and operations.
Laurent energized 18000 employees worldwide (EU, USA, ASIA) in 2 R&D centers and 7 manufacturing technical centers, a complex and demanding global organization sharing resources and knowledge across themselves and Countries.
Having completed multiple wafer fabrication facilities projects and built high performing teams responsible for sites start up in North America, Europe and Asia; Laurent is proven and recognized as an effective leader in high-tech industry, understanding the real meaning of diversity.
He lead a team of process engineers, manufacturing & facilities experts executing the successful transfer, with Automotive customers qualifications, of manufacturing operations from Europe/USA to Asia.
Laurent leads the silicon R&D International Alliance with NXP & FREESCALE for 300mm wafer size for nano technologies up to 45 nm. At the end of this Alliance, he participated to the negotiations, which turned to conclude, between ST& IBM, the agreement to cooperate in the development of silicon technology CMOS Logic 32&22 nm nodes, as well as developing Differentiated Technologies together
Laurent is an open mind leader who has the distinction of being among an elite group of executive that actually worked on the facilities floor. He started his career as production worker, then progressing through skilled trades via evening University and on to engineering and Executive Management.
Laurent's many assignments, starting as worker, progressing on to the executive level coupled with his passion for People and Technologies, gave him a unique perspective and background as agent of Individual/Cultural changes.
