In memoriam Barry Peet
July 12, 2022 – We are deeply affected by the death of our colleague and figurehead of CITC: Barry Peet.
As co-founder, first employee and general manager, he was the driving force behind the informal, open culture in our organization and the many partnerships with companies, research institutions and knowledge institutes.
Barry obtained an MSc in Electronic Engineering from the University of Twente. With a background in both ICT and semiconductors, he started his first company in mobile solutions in 1999 during his studies. After 13 years leading this company, Barry became managing director of BCSEMI (currently: Holland Semiconductors). In this position, he helped strengthen and expand the Dutch semiconductor ecosystem. From 2017, Barry initiated and founded CITC and moved to the position of General Manager at CITC in 2019. As General Manager, Barry was responsible for the overall management of CITC.
CITC would not be what it is today without him. We will miss his energy, enthusiasm and enormous drive. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family, relatives and friends. We wish them a lot of strength in this difficult period.
Employees, management and Supervisory Board CITC
