Intel Corporation announced today that the board of directors has unanimously elected Brian Krzanich as its next chief executive officer (CEO), succeeding Paul Otellini. Krzanich will assume his new role at the company's annual stockholders' meeting on May 16.

Krzanich, Intel's chief operating officer since January 2012, will become the sixth CEO in Intel's history. As previously announced, Otellini will step down as CEO and from the board of directors on May 16.





"After a thorough and deliberate selection process, the board of directors is delighted that Krzanich will lead Intel as we define and invent the next generation of technology that will shape the future of computing," said Andy Bryant, chairman of Intel.

"Brian is a strong leader with a passion for technology and deep understanding of the business," Bryant added. "His track record of execution and strategic leadership, combined with his open-minded approach to problem solving has earned him the respect of employees, customers and partners worldwide. He has the right combination of knowledge, depth and experience to lead the company during this period of rapid technology and industry change."

Krzanich, 52, has progressed through a series of technical and leadership roles since joining Intel in 1982.

"I am deeply honored by the opportunity to lead Intel," said Krzanich. "We have amazing assets, tremendous talent, and an unmatched legacy of innovation and execution. I look forward to working with our leadership team and employees worldwide to continue our proud legacy, while moving even faster into ultra-mobility, to lead Intel into the next era."

The board of directors elected Renée James, 48, to be president of Intel. She will also assume her new role on May 16, joining Krzanich in Intel's executive office.

"I look forward to partnering with Renée as we begin a new chapter in Intel's history," said Krzanich. "Her deep understanding and vision for the future of computing architecture, combined with her broad experience running product R&D and one of the world's largest software organizations, are extraordinary assets for Intel."

As chief operating officer, Krzanich led an organization of more than 50,000 employees spanning Intel's Technology and Manufacturing Group, Intel Custom Foundry, NAND Solutions group, Human Resources, Information Technology and Intel's China strategy.

James, 48, has broad knowledge of the computing industry, spanning hardware, security, software and services, which she developed through leadership positions at Intel and as chairman of Intel's software subsidiaries -- Havok, McAfee and Wind River. She also currently serves on the board of directors of Vodafone Group Plc and VMware Inc. and was chief of staff for former Intel CEO Andy Grove.

It should be interesting to see if Krzanich can be as incompetent and offensive as Otellini was.

Otellini led Intel to some its most profitable and most dominating quarters in company history.

You may not like the guy but he damn well is not incompetent. He did what any CEO of any company is supposed to do; bring in the dough. And he brought it in by the truck full.

Evolution.....it has begun....

Judging from his post in "AMD to Create Tailored Products Integrating Customer-Specific IP " I think the afore mentioned poster doesn't like Intel's prices either...

Glad they found someone among their own ranks. Nothing is worse than having an outsider come in with no God d*mned knowledge of how to run the business and watch him completely f*ck it up. :shadedshu

I have this argument with people pretty frequently at the company I work for (a very large, very old, very well known, semiconductor manufacturing company) following a long standing CEO stepping down and a new one stepping in. He was given a very substantial severance package, and that made a lot of my co-workers pretty unhappy--ignoring the fact that he turned the company around from being a financial ruin and shambles into one of the most consistently profitable companies in the tech industry.

I do believe CEO pay is in general over the top, but some times CEO's do a great job and I see nothing wrong with acknowledging that. Meg Whittman on the other hand...
