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.
