Hassane El-Khoury

Leader, Executive, Board Member & Automotive Enthusiast

President and CEO of onsemi

Hassane El-Khoury is a seasoned professional with over twenty years of experience in the technology sector. His career has fostered a deep understanding of customer and design requirements in the automotive and industrial markets, as well as a systems-level understanding to form integrated customer solutions and business strategy to drive results. El-Khoury is currently the president and CEO of onsemi (ON Semiconductor: ON) and Semiconductor Components Industries, LLC (www.onsemi.com) and a member of the board of directors of ON Semiconductor Corporation. Prior to ON, he served as president, CEO and member of the board of directors for Cypress Semiconductor. El-Khoury was the architect of the acquisition of Cypress by Infineon Technologies AG in early 2020 for an enterprise value of €9.0 billion.

El-Khoury also serves on the Board of Leia Inc., delivering advanced display optics and software to make 3D available to anyone, anywhere, on any device.

Under El-Khoury’s leadership, Cypress underwent a significant transformation from a founder-led semiconductor company to a cutting-edge organization that broke down barriers and embraced customer and industry problems instead of running away from them. Cypress 3.0, the foundation of El-Khoury’s strategy, not only redirected the company to target markets growing faster than the semiconductor market but embraced innovation from within while empowering his global team to think beyond current limits and challenge the status quo. Within the first two years of El-Khoury’s tenure, his strategy enabled the company to reach all-time high records for stock price, revenue and cash flow.

Prior to his role as the CEO of Cypress, El-Khoury led the company’s Programmable Systems Division, managing the standard and programmable microcontroller (MCU) portfolio, including its Platform PSoC family of devices, and its automotive business.

Before joining Cypress, El-Khoury served in various engineering roles with subsystem supplier Continental Automotive Systems, where he spent time based in the United States, Germany and Japan.

El-Khoury holds a bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering (BSEE) from Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, Michigan, and a master’s degree in engineering management from Oakland University in Rochester Hills, Michigan.
