Mark Dean – IBM fellow, inventor, holds three of IBM’s original nine PC patents-

Mark E. Dean (born March 2, 1957) is an American inventor and a computer engineer. He was part of the team that developed the ISA bus, and he led a design team for making a one-gigahertz computer processor chip. He holds three of IBM’s original nine PC patents. In August 2011, writing in his blog, Dean stated that he now uses a tablet computer instead of a PC.

Dean is the first African-American to become an IBM Fellow which is the highest level of technical excellence at the company. In 1997, he was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame. Currently, he is the John Fisher Distinguished Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Tennessee. He was previously CTO for IBM Middle East and Africa and was an IBM Vice President overseeing the company’s Almaden Research Center in San Jose, California prior to that. Dean now holds more than 20 patents – Wikipedia.
