Durcan promoted after death of former CEO Steven Appleton
Late last week, we learned that sad news that Micron Technology CEO and Chairman Steven Appleton
died in a small aircraft crash
. Appleton served as Micron’s CEO from 1994 until his death.
Micron is trying to move forward during this mourning period and has named Mark Durcan as its new CEO.
Durcan will also take a seat on the Micron Board of Directors where he will serve as the Director of the board. Former board Director Robert Switz is being promoted to Chairman of the Board and Mark Adams is being promoted to president of the board. Durcan was the President and Chief Operating Officer of Micron since 2007 and prior to that was the CTO at the company.

"We are fortunate to be able to appoint someone with Mark's operations and technical leadership experience to serve as the company's CEO," said Mr. Switz. "Mark has been instrumental in Micron's success in his role as President and COO and has garnered the respect of the company, his team members and the industry at large."
Mr. Durcan said, "We are deeply saddened by Steve's loss and will miss his hand at the helm. I have provided the Board my ongoing commitment to work with the management team and continue to move the company forward."
Micron Technology is one world's leading producers of semiconductor products. The most well known products from Micron Technology include DRAM, NAND, and NOR flash memory.
