Michael Johas Teener (BS '71)

I retired from Broadcom Ltd after 11 years, Apple for 12 years, and a number of startups before and in-between, and from chairing IEEE standards groups (1394 - Firewire, 802.1AVB - Audio Video Bridging, and 802.1TSN - Time-Sensitive Networking) for 29 years. All that work was acknowledged this December when I was given the IEEE Standards Association Lifetime Achievement Award, which comes with a nifty (and heavy) glass sculpture (that's me on the left, with the long hair). Although I may get back into the business as a consultant in the future, I've promised myself and my family a full year off to figure out what I want to do when I grow up.
