Micron’s CEO To Address Boise City Club

Micron Technology

Mark Durcan, Micron CEO

Micron Technology CEO Mark Durcan is scheduled to speak at next week’s City Club of Boise luncheon.

Duran took over as CEO in February after longtime CEO Steve Appleton died in a plane crash.

Micron employs more than 5,000 people in Idaho, but has gone through a series of layoffs since 2005.  The company shuttered its solar panel venture this year, laying off 250 people. It’s also in the process of purchasing a bankrupt Japanese chip-maker, a move intended to strengthen its manufacturing capacity.

Durcan is expected to address key trends in the tech sector and explain how Micron plans to maintain its spot in the industry.

The luncheon takes place Tuesday, August 28 at 11:45 a.m. at The Grove Hotel in Boise.  The reservation deadline is Friday, August 24 by noon.
