Peter Ungaro
CEO
Cray, Inc.

This guy knows how to run a supercomputing company! Pete has been on our “People to Watch” list in the past, but this past year he’s been quietly reshaping the iconic supercomputer maker. While his competition has been scrambling to stay solvent, Pete paid off company debt, teamed up with Microsoft and Intel to fill out the company’s CX1 deskside cluster line, and captured the number one spot on the TOP500 list.
