THE late Robbie McAdam, who passed away last week after a short illness, “significantly shaped” Analog Devices during his lengthy period of service with the company.
Mr McAdam, who was originally from Dundalk, lived in Limerick for the duration of his more than 30 year career with Analog Devices Inc (ADI), rising to the position of Executive Vice President, Strategic Business Segments Group, within the American multinational company, which has a large operations centre in the Raheen Industrial Estate.
Mr McAdam lived in Castletroy and is survived by his wife Maria, daughters Jean and Susan and grandchildren James, Robyn and Sophie, as well as his mother Peggy, brothers Pat and Jim, sisters Mamie and Margaret, sons-in-law Ray and Barry and a wide circle of extended family and friends.
Vincent Roche, President and CEO of Analog Devices Inc, said: “Robbie’s passing is a terrible loss for all of us here at ADI as his leadership and influence has significantly shaped this company.
“He held important roles in product, technology, and business leadership during his 31-year career with us. His impact extended to all parts of ADI.
“Robbie was not only a great contributor to ADI’s success over several decades but he was also a dedicated colleague and a dear friend. Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with his family at this difficult time,” added Mr Roche.
Mr McAdam held several key positions within the company, including Vice President of the Core Products and Technologies Group for four years and Vice President and General Manager of Analog Semiconductor Components for more than 15 years.
