Silicor Materials Honors Chairman John Corrent

August 21, 2015

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- With heavy hearts, the Silicor Materials team confirms the sudden passing of its beloved Chairman, John Correnti, at the age of 68.

Mr. Correnti is best known for his innovations in the steel industry—expertise he brought to Silicor's metals-based process. John most recently served as the Chairman and CEO of Arkansas-based Big River Steel.

"John was a revolutionary thinker, a respected leader, and a dear friend," said Silicor CEO Theresa Jester. "His profound impact on Silicor Materials—not just on our business, but also on the men and women he guided along the way—will be forever felt. Like so many others, we are fortunate to have known John, and we will miss him immensely."

Ms. Jester will assume Mr. Correnti's role on the Silicor Board of Directors.
