Cliff Stritch, President

President of IGI, Cliff is also one of the founders of IGI. Before starting IGI in 1969, Cliff’s experience in software programming and degrees in physics and computer design led him to form Man/Machine Interface, a software business. As the need for photolithography grew in the late 1960s, Cliff saw a lack of precision phototools to serve the growing industry and Infinite Graphics Incorporated was born. Today, Cliff is known as a precision photolithography leader and an “industry consultant.” He sees advances in technology as opportunities to find innovative photolithography software tools that take new developments to the next level.
