This particular blog post is about the history of a computer manufacturer company COMPAQ,
Compaq Computer Corporation was an American laptop company founded in 1982. Once the largest supplier of personal computing systems globally, Compaq existed as an impartial corporation until 2002, once it merged with Hewlett-Packard.
The manufacturer was formed by Rod Canion, Jim Harris in addition to Bill Murto former Texas Instruments senior managers. The name "COMPAQ" was producing from "Compatibility and Quality", as at its formation Compaq produced the various first IBM PC working computers.
Prior to its takeover this company was headquartered in northwest unincorporated Harris Nation, Texas, United States.
Compaq is founded in February 1982 by Rod Canion, Jim Harris in addition to Bill Murto, three senior citizen managers from semiconductor manufacturer Texas Instruments. Each used $1, 000 to form this company. Their first venture capital originated Ben Rosen and Sevin Rosen Monies. The original Compaq PC was initially sketched out on a placemat by the founders while dining in the local Houston restaurant, House hold of Pies.
Two critical marketing executives in Compaq's early on years, Jim D'Arezzo in addition to Sparky Sparks, had arrive from IBM's PC Group. Other key executives answerable for the company's meteoric growth within the late 80s and fast 90s were Ross Any. Cooley, another former IBMer, who served for ages as SVP of GM America; Michael Swavely, who was their chief marketing officer within the early years, and eventually ran the America organization, later passing together that responsibility to Mr. Cooley, once Swavely retired. In north america, Brendan A. "Mac" McLoughlin (another established IBM executive) led their field sales organization after setting up the Western U. Erinarians. Area of Operations. A lot of these gifted executives, along with other key contributors, this includes Kevin Ellington, Douglas Johns, Steven Flannigan, and even Gary Stimac, helped the manufacturer with the IBM Corporation in most personal computer sales styles, after many predicted that none could completely overcome the behemoth.
