Zac Rosenbaum is the Director of Facilities for Samsung Austin Semiconductor. In his role, Zac leads an extensive team responsible for the Ultrapure Water, waste treatment, exhaust abatement, as well as heating, ventilation and air conditioning management across the 2.45 million square-foot site that is operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week. As development ramps on a $17 billion Samsung Electronics investment in a new manufacturing facility in Texas, Zac’s leadership extends to the soon-to-be site in Taylor.
With focus on providing world-class utilities to internal and external customers and a commitment to maintaining the highest level of safety and quality in every aspect of operations, Zac has led Samsung Austin Semiconductor and the Facilities Team to notable successes. Recent accolades on behalf of Samsung Austin Semiconductor include earning both the 2022 Governor’s Texas Environmental Excellence Award and the 2022 Evoqua Water Sustainability Award. In addition, his team is a key contributor that made it possible for Samsung Austin Semiconductor to receive the City of Austin Excellence in Pretreatment Award for ten consecutive years.
During more than 16 years with Samsung, Zac has led roles across the business increasing in scope and complexity—from photolithography chip production to facilities engineering (solving critical operational dependencies), to construction in the buildout of Samsung Electronics’ next U.S. based advanced semiconductor fabrication facility. He is an accomplished leader who remains focused on maintaining the highest integrity across his team and work.
