Andy Grove, Intel’s First Employee, Passed Away

Andy Grove, former CEO of Intel and one of the first people who ever worked at the company, has passed away at the age of 79.

Grove was the first employee of Intel, joining the team after the founders, Gordon Moore and Robert Noyce, have put the company on the stock market, in 1968.

He became President of the company in 1979 and CEO in 1987, and was responsible for Intel’s genesis that we know today. Intel was initially producing only memory chips, but has suffered because of the Japanese competition. Under Grove’s leadership, Intel began producing processors, and he is the one responsible for the exclusive contract with IBM and the 386 processor, thus leading to the launch of the first traditional PCs.

In 2000, Grove was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Currently, the cause of his death was not specified. Apple CEO Tim Cook, Salesforce CEO Marc Benoiff and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella were among the many to pay tribute to Grove on Twitter:
