Late ADI CEO strengthened the engineering environment

General Technical Conference
Fishman gave great thought and consideration to the Analog Devices General Technical Conference (GTC) each year. 1,500 engineers have been invited for this year's event in April of 2013. He would deliver special and inspirational messages to the attendees each year.

As the industry environment changed so often in the semiconductor/electronics industry, Fishman used to say that his company was defined by how well transitions were managed. He expanded MEMS development, kept hiring new graduates amidst the early 2000s industry downturn. Fishman's view in product development was to strengthen the horizontal product areas which would enable solid growth and profits and penetration into the many new vertical markets that the company successfully entered.

By building and strengthening a broad customer base, Fishman helped insulate the company from the many cyclical peaks and valleys seen in the electronics industry.

Jerry Fishman will surely be missed and our condolences go out to his family, friends, colleagues and employees. Vince Roche, 25-year veteran of ADI and the company president was named interim CEO. Analog Devices now has the task of selecting the next CEO and they have a group of very competent people making that decision, headed up by Ray Stata. No worries about that team's capabilities.
