It was a young immigrant from Europe who came to the United States nearly 70 years ago who helped create and promote technology that would literally transform the world.
His name was Andrew Grove. A Hungarian by birth, he fled the Hungarian revolution in 1956 to come to the US.
In 1968, he joined the newly formed company called Intel, and eventually became its third CEO. His leadership propelled Intel to the forefront of the fledgling industry.
And in 1997 Andy Grove was Time Magazine’s Man of the Year for his influence in advancing the power and potential of the microchip.
In 2001, Grove wrote his autobiography, a book he called Swimming Across. And that’s when I have the chance to talk with him for a few minutes .
So here now, from 2001, Andy Grove.
Andrew Grove died in 2016 at age 79.
