Mark Durcan, CEO of Micron Technology explains, "There is a lot of talent in Boise and Micron is not the only high-tech company in town." In Boise, the Micron campus houses research and development, manufacturing and corporate leadership. "It used to be hard to recruit people to Boise, but once they got here they loved it. These days it is pretty easy."
On Friday morning (2/3/2012), Steve Appleton (CEO of Micron) passed away in a plane accident.
Steve Appleton was a pillar of this community and we will continue to feel the influence of his vision for years to come. His leadership in elevating a home-grown Idaho company to the global stage has paved the way for future pioneers and visionaries in our valley to dream big and achieve greatness. We grieve with our community and share our deepest condolences with his family and friends and those he influenced over the years through his leadership of Micron.
