President JOHN HENNESSY will receive a Spirit of Silicon Valley – Lifetime Achievement Award this afternoon at the Silicon Valley Leadership Group‘s annual Public Policy Luncheon.

Dan Warmenhoven, executive board chairman of NetApp Inc., also will be honored.

“Silicon Valley is proud to have such outstanding individuals to celebrate this year,” said Carl Guardino, president and CEO of the Leadership Group.

“Both Dan and John are consummate business leaders, and both are known for their strong ethics and deep commitments to the community. They embody the true spirit of the award.”

The two leaders were selected by a panel that included the Leadership Group’s executive committee and past winners of the award, who include Gordon Moore, Intel Corp. co-founder; Craig Barrett, retired Intel CEO; Jim Morgan, chairman emeritus and former chief executive of Applied Materials Inc.; and Aart de Geus, founder and chairman of Synopsys Inc.

The Silicon Valley Leadership Group was founded in 1978 by DAVID PACKARD and represents 300 of Silicon Valley’s most prominent employers.

  1. Excellent. Now he can pollute the world to an unheard of level. The production of photovoltaics is the single greatest producer per watt of toxic chemicals of any power producing technology. Also, the effective life of panels in real world installations makes them barely able to produce more than the energy needed to manufacture them. Good luck scaling up that technology. The key to energy efficiency is reduction of consumption. Just another case of believing that technology itself can necessarily improve our lives without intelligent application.
