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

Ali Sebt is the President of the U.S. division of a Japanese company. Do you think that comes with challenges? You bet it does, and Ali elaborates on that.

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.
