Pritchard Hall of Fame at IPC APEX EXPO 2022 on Tuesday, January 25. IPC’s most prestigious award, the Hall of Fame is given to individuals who have provided exceptional service and advancement to IPC and the electronics industry.

O’Neil, principal at OAA Ventures, formerly served as CEO of Green Circuits. An exceptionally involved IPC volunteer, he was an active participant in the IPC Cares program, the IPC Workforce Champions initiative, and served on the IPC Board from 2006 to 2018, most recently as Chairman of the Board. A member of the Global Government Relations Committee, and Board Chair of the IPC Education Foundation (IPCEF), O’Neil also serves on the IPC Thought Leaders Program, and recently published, “Printed Circuit Boards Matter: Rebuilding the U.S. Electronics Supply Chain,” a report that outlines steps that the U.S. Government and the industry itself must take if it is to survive in the United States.

“Described as a ‘true industry leader’ by his peers, Joe is among the first to volunteer himself and does so without ego and in the spirit of collaboration, speaking with authority on both technology trends and operations. Understanding both the needs of business and industry, he brings his excitement about what is happening now in electronics manufacturing, and what is possible in the future,” said John W. Mitchell, IPC president and CEO.

“Joe is a true leader in the global electronics industry and has made immense and long-lasting contributions to IPC and to electronics manufacturing,” Mitchell added. “We are thrilled to welcome him as the newest Hall of Fame inductee.”
