10 Things You Didn’t Know about Micron Technology CEO Sanjay Mehrotra

Sanjay Mehrotra is both the CEO and the President of Micron Technology. Said corporation is a major manufacturer of semiconductor devices, meaning that while it might not be particularly well-known to most consumers, it is nonetheless very important for a wide range of industries. Here are 10 things that you may or may not have known about Sanjay Mehrotra:

1. Sanjay Means Victory

Sanjay is a popular Indian name that means “victory.” For that matter, it is an old name as well, as shown by the fact that there is a character called Sanjaya in the Mahabharata. Said individual was the one who narrated the Battle of Kurukshetra for the blind King Dhritarashtra, which was made possible by the gift of seeing events at a distance.

2. Mehrotra Means Sun Priest

There are sources that claim that Mehrotra means “sun priest.” This is based on Mehrotra being a short form of Mihira Hotri, with Mihira being an ancient Indian word that means “sun.” Supposedly, Mehrotra shares the same meaning as Malhotra because the two are different versions of the same name that saw use in different contexts.

3. He Studied at BITS Pilani

Mehrotra studied at the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani, which can be shortened to BITS Pilani. Said school is one of the best that can be found in the whole of India, which is interesting because it started out as no more than a regional engineering college. In its transformation, BITS Pilani received a considerable boost because of the efforts of the businessman G.D. Birla.

4. He Studied at University of California, Berkeley

With that said, Mehrotra never completed the program at BITS Pilani. Instead, he transferred over to the University of California, Berkeley, which is one of the schools in the University of California system with the best reputation. In fact, said school is considered to be the flagship university of the ten research universities that can be found in said system.

5. He Studied Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences

At Berkeley, Mehrotra studied electrical engineering. In time, he studied computer engineering as well. Finally, it is interesting to note that he has also gone to Stanford University, where he graduated from its Executive Education Program in 2009.

6. He Has Patents

Mehrotra’s degrees in electrical engineering and computer science aren’t for show. For proof, look no further than the fact that he has more than 70 patents, which speak of a rather productive career.

7. Co-Founded SanDisk

It is interesting to note that Mehrotra was one of the co-founders of SanDisk, which is one of the biggest manufacturers of flash memory devices that can be found on the market. For a time, he even served as both its CEO and its President until it was bought out by Western Digital in 2016. Before that, Mehrotra had held other high-ranking positions of importance at the corporation.

8. Has Experience from Other Corporations

Mehrotra has been involved with non-volatile semiconductor memory and related products for a long time. As a result, it should come as no surprise to learn that he has experience from other companies besides Micron Technology and SanDisk. Examples include both Atmel Corporation and Intel Corporation.

9. Took a Hit Because of the Tariffs

Unsurprisingly, Micron Technology took a hit on the stock market because of President Donald Trump’s tariffs. In short, what happened was that the tariffs reduced the corporation’s profit margins, which caused investors a fair amount of fear. This is because Micron Technology manufactured some of its products in China, meaning that the tariffs increased its costs when shipping its products to the United States.

10. Believed that Micron Technology Could Adjust Over Time

At the time, Mehrotra stated that Micron Technology’s supply chain was both robust enough and widespread enough that it could adjust to the impact of the tariffs by moving some things around. However, such operations can’t change in an instant, which is why he provided a time frame of three to four quarters. With that said, while it is interesting that Micron Technology is capable of making such changes within that kind of time frame, the problem is that economic policies can change much faster than that. Something that can become rather problematic when political leadership isn’t as steady as it should be.
