Hillas contributed expertise in financial analysis and technology-based business development, along with substantial experience as a director and senior executive of public and private companies in various industries.

"Having been one of the earliest directors, he helped guide the company through its initial public offering, and played an important role in its ongoing strategic evolution. He was also critical in ensuring smooth leadership transitions as the company grew through many phases. His service and contributions have been substantial, greatly influencing the company on its journey to become what we are today. On a personal level, I have benefitted in many ways from his advice and counsel. His presence will be missed, and on behalf of all ATMI employees and fellow board members, I wish him the very best in all of his endeavors."
