Ex-Intel CEO Andy Grove dies


former Intel Corp. chief executive Andy Grove, the  whose youth under Nazi occupation and escape from the Iron Curtain inspired an “only the paranoid survive” management philosophy that saved the chip maker from financial ruin in the 1980s, died. He was 79.

Grove was Intel’s very first hire and played an instrumental role in taking the company from a scrappy startup to the most powerful chipmaker in the world. His leadership at Intel spans over 30 years, being named the company’s President in 1979 and CEO in 1987. Andy Grove was one of the giants of the technology world. He loved our country and epitomized America at its best. Rest in peace.
