Silicon Valley Leadership Group


"In the summer of 1977, David Packard asked a number of his fellow CEOs to join him in creating a proactive voice for Silicon Valley businesses. The result was the formation of the Silicon Valley Manufacturing Group (SVMG), which has successfully tackled some of the toughest challenges facing high-tech employers and their employees. [...] In March 2005, SVMG changed its name to Silicon Valley Leadership Group (SVLG) to better reflect the work of the organization. As of December 2005, SVLG represents more than 200 of the Silicon Valley's most respected employers. SVLG members collectively provide nearly 250,000 local jobs, or one of every four private sector jobs in Silicon Valley."
