Andy Grove is one of the great business leaders and visionaries of the past century. In 26 years as—successively—president, CEO, and chairman of Intel, he built the Santa Clara chipmaker into one of the world’s largest companies and helped make Silicon Valley the epicenter of the digital revolution. In 1997, Time magazine named him Man of the Year. A native of Hungary, Grove (né András Gróf) survived the Holocaust as a child and emigrated to the US in 1956. After earning a PhD from UC Berkeley, he began his career at Fairchild Semiconductor, then helped launch Intel in 1968. Taking over as president in 1979 and CEO in 1987, he transformed the company into the dominant supplier of microprocessors in the PC era. Grove retired as chairman in 2005 but remains a senior advisor. The author of six books, he has taught at Stanford Business School for more than two decades and recently helped establish a master’s degree in translational medicine at UC San Francisco.
