Five Minutes With…Ali Sebt, President, Renesas Electronics America

July 14, 2015

How do you convince the powers that be within your organization that you'd like to develop a next-generation product family completely in the U.S., when that's never been done before? Again, it's difficult, but it can clearly be done, as Ali explains.

Finally, Ali offers advice to the technical community who are looking to move to the business side of things, advice that clearly goes beyond this limited discussion.
