Analog Devices appoints Vincent Roche CEO
Analog Devices today announced the appointment of Vincent Roche as President and Chief Executive Officer and his election to the Board of Directors, effective immediately. “ADI is fortunate to have an executive of Vince’s calibre assume the leadership of our company,” said Ray Stata, ADI co-founder and Chairman of the Board.“Vince’s long tenure and his deep understanding of our technology, customers, and markets will serve ADI well as we continue to execute on the strategic plan which Vince played a major role in shaping. I’m confident that Vince will continue the record of success in which all ADI employees take great pride.”
