Compaq UK Founder Joe McNally Dies

Joe McNally, who founded Compaq’s UK subsidiary in 1984 and turned it into one of the UK’s major computing brands, has died at the age of 69 after a three-year battle with cancer. McNally famously founded the UK branch of Compaq, then a fast-growing force in the US computing market, with a modest $40,000 (£25,000).
