Intel confirms new CEO will take office May 16
We have known for quite some time that Intel CEO Paul Otellini was set to
retire this year
. Today, however, Intel voted unanimously to replace outgoing CEO Otellini with new CEO Brian Krzanich.
Kzanich will assume the CEO position at Intel's annual stockholders meeting on May 16. He has been Intel's chief operating officer since January of 2012 and his appointment to CEO makes him the sixth CEO in Intel company history.
“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 has been with Intel since 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.”

"Intel has proven clueless in the past AMD was the company that advanced x86 into 64-bit realm whilst intel tried to push itanium as the 64-bit successor. "
Totally agreed, AMD was first with "dual core" and "on die" memory controllers as well. At that time I had a Athlon 64x2 and loved it. Intel was caught sleeping no doubt, but all AMD did was wake them up. Intel punched back and punched hard with the Core architecture and kicked AMD back to the bargain bin. Its not even close anymore. Intel is huge and huge companies can be inefficient and make bad chooces at times, but they do still have the best chip manufacturing capabilites on Earth and most of the best chip engineers as well. Other posts here are right, dont count them out. ARM should be feering them and hoping they dont decide to concentrate on mobile because if they do, ARM just might be done for... Or simply bought out.
