ANALOG DEVICES CREATES NEW SENIOR MANAGEMENT TEAM NORWOOD, Mass., Nov. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Analog Devices, Inc.
(NYSE: ADI) today announced a series of actions to expand its senior management team and broaden participation by the key executives who will be responsible for the company's growth and success in the '90s. These moves included the election of Tom Urwin, vice president of Manufacturing, as an officer of the corporation and the appointment of eight managers to the rank of vice president. Also, Kozo Imai, vice president of Japanese Operations, will now report directly to Ray Stata, chairman of the board and chief executive officer as Mel Sallen, senior vice president, steps down from his post in anticipation of retirement next year.
"Tom Urwin's election as a corporate officer," commented Ray Stata, "reflects the growing importance to Analog of achieving excellence in manufacturing. Our increased emphasis on manufacturing was also underscored by the appointment of two of Analog's other key manufacturing managers to vice president: Robert Marshall, Manufacturing general manager for ADBV, the company's semiconductor division in Ireland, and Geoff Thomas, Manufacturing general manager for the PMI Semiconductor Division." Other managers promoted to vice president include J. B. Archinard, general manager of the Industrial Electronics Division; David French, general manager of the System IC Products Division; Robert McAdam, general manager of ADBV; Jock Ochiltree, general manager of the PMI Semiconductor Division; Joseph Reichbach, director of North American Sales; and Goodloe Suttler, general manager of the Analog Devices Semiconductor Division. "Earlier this week we announced the election of Jerry Fishman as president and chief operating officer reporting to me. That important step, along with today's changes and the previously-announced promotion of Joe McDonough to chief financial officer, are all actions that we have taken to put in place the next generation of leadership at Analog Devices. We have come to a milestone in our history where many of the individuals who were instrumental in building the company have retired or will soon do so. In creating a new senior management team consisting of the best of our younger talent, we have laid the groundwork for Analog Devices to be as successful in the '90s as it has in the past."
