Tunç Doluca joined Maxim in 1984 as a Member of Technical Staff. Tunç has personally designed over 40 products and holds 11 patents. In 1993, he was named the company's Vice President of R&D. In 1994, he became the founding General Manager of the Portable Power Business Unit. By 2005, Tunç’s responsibilities had expanded to managing seven business units and he was promoted to Group President.
In 2007, Tunç became the second Chief Executive Officer in the company’s history. During his tenure as CEO, Maxim reorganized product development around end markets and completed six strategic acquisitions. Tunç oversaw the transition of Maxim’s manufacturing to a more flexible hybrid production model and improved overall manufacturing execution. In 2010, Maxim was one of the first analog companies to transition to 300mm wafer technology.
In 2015, Tunç reorganized the company, creating a single organization combining all Business Units along with Sales & Marketing, as well as a focused effort on New Ventures. This new structure will allow the company to better align its current business with the needs of customers, while freeing resources to explore new business opportunities outside of our core business.
