Akrometrix LLC, the leader in elevated temperature surface characterization, is pleased to announce that Mayson Brooks has joined the company as President & CEO, effective July 6, 2015. Mr. Brooks brings significant experience in semiconductor inspection and metrology for both front and back-end applications, especially in advanced packaging, which is an excellent fit for the strategic direction of Akrometrix.

Most recently Brooks was SVP, Worldwide Sales, Marketing and Field Operations for Rudolph Technologies, and has held several other senior positions at Rudolph in general management, sales, marketing and customer service. His global experience will be of benefit as Akrometrix expands its worldwide presence and markets served.

Brooks has a BS from the United States Naval Academy, MBA from the University of North Carolina and completed the General Management Program at the Harvard Business School. He will be located at Akrometrix’s Atlanta office.

Timothy J. Purdie, current Akrometrix President & CEO, announced last October that it was time for a smooth transition to a new President & CEO who had the capacity to move the company to the next level of success. Mr. Purdie will remain a member of the Akrometrix Board of Directors.

Mr. Purdie stated, “I have enjoyed working with industry leaders that have helped propel Akrometrix to become the leader in warpage management programs within the electronic marketplace. The greatest benefit has been working with the team members of Akrometrix, without which we could never have achieved the success we enjoy today. However, while I have enjoyed major successes with the company, it is time to move closer to my family and spend some quality time with each of them.”
