SAN FRANCISCO May 4 (Reuters) - SurveyMonkey Chief Executive Dave Goldberg died while exercising at a hotel gym in Mexico, a person close to the family said Monday.

Goldberg, the spouse of Facebook Inc Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, collapsed at the gym, and efforts to revive him there and at a hospital were unsuccessful, the person said.

Goldberg's brother announced his death on Saturday morning via a Facebook post, and SurveyMonkey also put out a short statement. [ID: L1N0XT0JR]

One of Silicon Valley's most admired entrepreneurs, Goldberg was known for his low-key demeanor and the grace and good humor with which he handled being married to one of the nation's most recognizable executives.

Under his leadership, privately held poll-taking company SurveyMonkey grew into a $2 billion business.

A memorial service for Goldberg will be held on Tuesday at Stanford University, according to friends of the family.
