Ray Stata is Chairman of Analog Devices, Inc., based in Norwood, Massachusetts. Working out of his basement, Mr. Stata co-founded Analog Devices in the 1960s. stata-headshot-100pxAs of 2009, ADI serves over 60,000 customers, has 9,000 employees and a market capitalization of over $6 billion. I met with Mr. Stata in Norwood, and in the interview we explored his thoughts on bootstrapping a start-up, leadership in innovative companies, and the challenges and opportunities of globalization. Make sure you don’t miss the Nova Devices story — what drama.

The issue also features Rockford College’s recent High School Career Day and congratulates five student prize winners: Hannah Mueller, Jennifer LaSarre, Jake Maliszewski, Lisa Voss, and Kelly King.
