2-minute read - by Christine Middleton, April 25, 2024

On April 25, 2024, Christophe Fouquet started in his new role as ASML’s President and Chief Executive Officer. His four-year appointment term as CEO begins as those of outgoing CEO Peter Wennink and outgoing Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Martin van den Brink come to a close.

As we undergo this transition, industry trends, including artificial intelligence (AI), edge computing and the clean energy transition, are driving strong demand in a dynamic semiconductor industry. Through our advanced lithography solutions, ASML is well positioned to support chipmakers in making smaller, faster and more energy-efficient microchips for these applications.
”I know I can count on colleagues around the world to closely collaborate to further develop our technology, serve our customers and create value for all our stakeholders.”
