SanDisk Cofounder Joins Micron As President And CEO

Micron has appointed Sanjay Mehrotra, co-founder of SanDisk, as its new President and CEO. Sanjay steps into the role to replace Mark Durcan, who announced his retirement at Micron’s 2017 Analyst Conference.

At the time, Durcan indicated that he would continue to lead Micron and assist the company in the search for his replacement, and he will continue to serve as an advisor until early August. Durcan’s 32-year tenure at Micron was marked by several successes as the company weathered the tumultuous early years of the DRAM market and helped bring NAND technology to the mainstream market. Durcan originally announced his retirement five years ago but assumed the CEO position after the passing of Micron’s former CEO Steve Appleton.
