“I want to thank Dale for his outstanding service to Teledyne over the last 41 years,” said Robert Mehrabian, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Teledyne. “He was instrumental in Teledyne’s spin-off and subsequent profitable growth. Sue has the experience and understanding of Teledyne to allow for a very orderly transition.”
