Mr. Purdie stated, “I have enjoyed working with industry leaders that have helped propel Akrometrix to become the leader in warpage management programs within the electronic marketplace. The greatest benefit has been working with the team members of Akrometrix, without which we could never have achieved the success we enjoy today. However, while I have enjoyed major successes with the company, it is time to move closer to my family and spend some quality time with each of them.”
