Bay Area to Great Lakes: Gary White’s Journey

Feb 11, 2021 1 min read

It’s no secret that we here at KLA take a great deal of pride in our global presence. While we started in Silicon Valley, our community, like our industry, has grown to incorporate influence and innovation from many cultures both across and outside the US. Recently, we have seen many major technology companies – including our neighbors such as Oracle and HPE – announce their intent to decentralize from California’s Bay Area. This trend is another area where KLA is ahead of the curve. Over the last two years, we have been enthusiastically growing our second US headquarters, in Ann Arbor, Michigan, by utilizing the technological talent pipeline in the Midwest, and by transitioning personnel from our other global sites and West Coast home. One such longtime West Coast resident found new excitement and opportunity in his move east from Silicon Valley. Gary White, a KLA Systems and Electrical Engineering Manager details his experience for Crain’s Detroit Business below.
