SurveyMonkey Chief David Goldberg Dies
He made opinion polling accessible to anyone while building a profit-making Web concern worth $2 billion. But David Goldberg, who died Friday at age 47, was best known as spouse and helpmate to Silicon Valley’s most influential woman, Sheryl Sandberg. In her bestselling book, Lean In, she attributes some of her success to his help caring for the couple’s two children. One former colleague said he was “the person by which I measure all others.” No cause of death has been announced, but Facebook founder and family friend Mark Zuckerberg said the couple were vacationing abroad when Goldberg died.
