This is a dynamic industry, with tremendous growth opportunities, and I am proud to take on this important role as leader of a company with such a strong and exciting history, ONeal states. Linears spirit and ability to hone in on market needs is crucial for any successful company today, and its a culture I embrace.  
Stottlemyre, a 23-year veteran of the Linear organization, has presided over a lengthy period of diversification and has been instrumental in its growth and success during his tenure.  He has played a key role in identifying and cultivating countless new and successful relationships, and literally thousands of new products, during his time in the position as President.  Now, he looks forward to his new role as Vice Chairman.   
Linear, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary in business this year, is known for its steadfast loyalty to customers and employees.  The company is dedicated to providing easy-to-install, interchangeable components and integrated systems -- giving dealers and installers flexible solutions for nearly any application.
According to ONeal, Linears approach to the next 50 years will be guided by many of the same principles -- quality, reliability and innovation -- it has had in place since 1961.  Our customer expectations have never been higher, and we are committed to meeting and exceeding them, he says.  In these next 50 years, I look forward to expanding our presence in the global marketplace.  My past experience positions me well for guiding this growth initiative.
ONeal holds a B.A. and M.A. in Political Science from The State University of New Jersey, New Brunswick, NJ.   He and his family are in the process of relocating to the Carlsbad area.
