Dr. Matthias Peschke is to become the head of the Competence Center Production of First Sensor AG effective September 7, 2015. In this role, Dr. Peschke will be responsible for production sites in Berlin, Dresden and Oberdischingen.

Dr. Peschke completed his degree in Physics at TU Darmstadt and wrote his doctorate on the topic of "The mode of operation and technology of gas-sensitive field-effect transistors." He began his professional career at Siemens in Munich and at IBM in the USA, before moving to Infineon in Dresden. Here he coordinated cross-site technology transfers and was responsible for the development of series production processes. After 15 years at Siemens/Infineon, Dr. Peschke moved to the Advanced Mask Technology Center in Dresden. He then joined Masdar PV GmbH, where he managed production and the establishment of two thin-film lines, set up teams, introduced a QM system, and expanded cooperation with universities. After just two years, Dr. Peschke was appointed COO of Masdar PV GmbH. Dr. Peschke’s most recent position was as a consultant for GLOBALFOUNDRIES and Dhabi Holdings, an investor domiciled in Abu Dhabi.
