For three of those years, Mr. Croteau also managed NXP’s Power & Lighting Solutions business. Prior to joining NXP, Mr. Croteau held numerous product management positions at Analog Devices, Inc. (“ADI”), a high-performance semiconductor company, including general manager for ADI’s Convergent Platforms and Services Group as well as product line director for the Integrated Audio Group. Mr. Croteau holds a B.S., Engineering Science and Mechanics, from Penn State University.

Also effective December 13, 2012, Charles Bland retired from his position as the Company’s Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Bland will remain on the Company’s Board and will remain with the Company in an advisory capacity to assist with the transition.
