Zinn: An aggressive CEO makes a big difference

January 20, 2017 Rich Nass, Embedded Computing Brand Director

The CEO of nVidia, Jen-Hsun Huang, spends a lot of time talking about how great his company is and how great their products are. I’d likely agree with that assessment, but the discussion for this week was whether it’s better to have an aggressive CEO verses one that’s very quiet and laid back and, in theory at least, more enjoyable to work with. Ray Zinn, who guided Micrel for 37 years falls into the middle of that spectrum, but leaning more toward the laid back side. We discussed which is the better position to take.
