Sigasi Appoints Dieter Therssen as New CEO

Sigasi, the global leader in hardware design guidance software, is upping its game. Things are changing in the semiconductor landscape, and Sigasi intends to harness its proven technological knowhow and its intimate understanding of users to ride these waves. As part of this strategy, the Board of Directors brings Dieter Therssen on board to join the leadership team and expand the business in this evolving era of digital design.

Dieter started his career as a hardware Design Engineer, using Imec’s visionary tools and design methodologies in the early days of silicon integration. Since then, he developed his career across many digital technologies, in a broad range of applications and for a variety of companies. Dieter brings with him a solid track record in building B2B relationships, and a strong network in the sector.
