Kildare, has been named Assistant General Manager of Fab Sort Manufacturing at Intel, a role that she will assume in addition to her current responsibilities as a Vice President of Manufacturing and Operations. Ann-Marie will fulfill this new global role from Ireland.

In recent years the Intel campus in Leixlip, Co. Kildare, has undergone a significant upgrade project to enable the site to produce 14nm technology. Under Ann-Marie’s leadership, the Fab 24 facility has become a key production location for 14nm products, ensuring that leading-edge silicon microprocessors, manufactured in Ireland, are at the heart of technology innovations that are essential to the way we learn, live, and work today.

Today, more than 4,900 people work for Intel in Ireland with the total investment standing at $15 billion, the largest private investment in the history of the Irish statue. Each year Intel contributes €1.08 billion to the Irish economy.

Ann-Marie held a variety of different roles before being named as the Fab 24 Factory Manager in 2012. In 2017, Fab 24 was recognised with an Intel Quality Award, which is Intel’s highest organisational honour.

Ann-Marie joined Intel Corporation in 1991 as a new college graduate and since then has gone on to work in all four of the Fab Sort Manufacturing facilities in Ireland – Fab 10, Fab 14, Ireland Fab Operations (IFO) and Fab 24.

Ann-Marie hails from Co. Roscommon and is an Engineering Graduate of Trinity College Dublin. Ann-Marie is married to Paul and has two children, Cian and Ruth. Ann-Marie has worked in Intel all of her career making her the first Irish graduate hire to go on and become Intel Vice President.

Speaking about her new role, Ann-Marie said; “I have had the honour of leading the Fab 24 team for more than 8 years and it has been the greatest privilege to be able to work together with such hard working and dedicated people to create technology that changes the world and shapes the future. I look forward to taking on this new role and embracing the opportunity to work with people across our global manufacturing network as we continue to deliver leading edge technologies”.
