Alexander Everke has taken over as CEO of analog, mixed-signal and sensor company AMS AG (Unterpremstaetten, Austria) replacing Kirk Laney.

It was announced back in August 2015 that Everke would take the CEO position (see AMS recruits chip veteran as CEO ) and that Laney will become the company’s chief strategist for sensors and remain a member of the management board.

During his career Everke has held senior executive positions with Siemens, Infineon and NXP.

"Sensors touch almost every aspect of our lives – from smartphones to wearables, IoT devices, industrial applications and connected vehicles – and AMS is poised for further growth with our portfolio of industry-leading sensor technologies," said Everke, in a statement.

AMS thanked Laney for his work as CEO and said that he will work with other management board members on M&A and strategic relationships for the company.
