Embedded Executive: Phil Gallagher, CEO, Avnet

When you’re looking for somebody with a bird’s eye view of the electronics industry, there aren’t too many people with a better handle on things than the CEO of Avnet, Phil Gallagher.

As my guest on this week’s Embedded Executives podcast, I went through a host of issues related to the industry, from the pandemic to the life of an up and coming engineer, to how a company can survive for 100 years.

Richard Nass’ key responsibilities include setting the direction for all aspects of OSM’s ECD portfolio, including digital, print, and live events. Previously, Nass was the Brand Director for Design News. Prior, he led the content team for UBM’s Medical Devices Group, and all custom properties and events. Nass has been in the engineering OEM industry for more than 30 years. In prior stints, he led the Content Team at EE Times, Embedded.com, and TechOnLine. Nass holds a BSEE degree from NJIT.
