As the stock price of Nvidia, a famous American semiconductor company, soars every day due to the special generative artificial intelligence (AI), and the market capitalization approaches $ 1 trillion, interest in founder and CEO Jensen Huang is rising.
He is Taiwanese American. Born in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan, he immigrated to Thailand with his family at the age of 9, then went on to study at an American university and continues to live in the United States.
He co-founded Nvidia in Silicon Valley in 1993 and has served as CEO for 30 years. He was born in 1963 and is exactly 60 years old this year.
He holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Oregon State University and a master’s degree in electrical engineering from Stanford University.
After graduating from college, he was in charge of microprocessor design at famous American semiconductor companies such as AMD, and co-founded Nvidia in 1993.
Although he is an engineer, he has excellent management skills and is evaluated as having made Nvidia reborn as the world’s leading semiconductor company.
He is recognized for his excellent management skills to the extent that he was selected as one of the world’s 100 most influential people by Time in 2021.
His trademark is a black leather jacket. When he gives a performance presentation or a keynote speech at a forum, he always wears a black leather jacket.
Just as Apple founder Steve Jobs made his signature black turtleneck T-shirt and jeans fashion his trademark, he seems to be trying to make a black leather jacket his trademark.
If you search for Jensen Huang in Google search, the keyword ‘leather jacket’ is automatically completed.
Famous sayings include “The better graphics card you buy, the more money you save”. Recently, in relation to the US semiconductor attack on the public, he warned that “it will become a self-inflicted attack on the US itself.”
On the 25th (local time), Nvidia closed at $379.80 on the New York Stock Exchange, up 24.37% from the previous trading day. As a result, the market capitalization recorded 939.2 billion dollars, making it the 5th largest company in the world, and is expected to exceed 1 trillion dollars for the first time among semiconductor companies.
The previous day, Nvidia’s market cap was $755.2 billion. Its market capitalization is about $200 billion a day. As a result, Jensen Huang’s personal wealth also skyrocketed, ranking 37th in the world. The day before, he was ranked 49th in the world.
His personal fortune grew by $6.37 billion in one day, bringing the total to $34 billion. On his year-to-date basis, it’s up $20.2 billion.
