CEO and President of Tronics MEMS to Speak at SWOSU Physics Banquet

Brian Stephenson 

The SWOSU Division of Physics will host its annual Physics Spring Alumni Banquet on Saturday, March 31, at 7 p.m. in the SWOSU Memorial Student Center Ballroom on the Weatherford campus.  Brian Stephenson—chief operating officer and president of Tronics MEMS, Inc. in Dallas TX—will be guest speaker.

The public is invited to the event. Tickets are $15 and can be paid for at the door, but advance reservations are needed by March 28. Email or call 580.774.3109 to make reservations.

Stephenson graduated from SWOSU in 1992 with a degree in Engineering Physics.  Since then he has worked in the semiconductor industry, accumulating over 20 years of engineering and management experience. Prior to joining Tronics, he was senior engineering manager at STMicroelectronics where he managed teams working on high volume, integrated MEMS processes.

Stephenson has also held various process engineering and management positions with TI, WaferTech, Ebara Technologies and Novellus Systems.  He currently resides in Highland Village (TX) with his wife, Rachelle Cole, (also a SWOSU physics alumnus) and three children—Lauren (15), Michael (13) and Elizabeth (7).

Prior to Stephenson’s talk, the Physics Division will induct new members to Sigma Pi Sigma, the national physics honor society, and award honors and scholarships to recognize academic achievement and contributions to the department.
