Intel announced his death in a statement."We are deeply saddened by the passing of former Intel Chairman and CEO Andy Grove. Andy made the impossible happen, time and again, and inspired generations of technologists, entrepreneurs, and business leaders," Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said in a statement.
It was under Grove's watch that Intel formed the famous "Wintel" duopoloy with Microsoft that dominated the PC market. Intel increased annual revenues from $1.9 billion to more than $26 billion under Grove's management.But it's Grove's relentless work ethic and bruising management style that have earned the respect of many followers. Steve Jobs used to call Grove his mentor, while Marc Andreessen often says Grove's the man who built Silicon Valley. His book, "Only the Paranoid Survive," is still considered a must-read management book by many business leaders.
