Texas Instruments is turning over leadership to a new president and CEO after 19 years.
The announcement was made Thursday that COO Haviv Ilan will succeed the current president and CEO, Rich Templeton. Ilan’s position will be effective starting April 1 and Templeton will still serve as Texas Instruments Chairman of the Board.
