Intel Names Current COO as CEO and Software and Services Head as President

Intel’s COO Brian Krzanich, 52, a company veteran of nearly 30 years, will assume the CEO role replacing Paul Otellini, who is retiring. Krzanich has progressed through a series of technical and leadership roles at Intel, most recently serving as the COO since January 2012. Prior to becoming COO, Krzanich held senior leadership positions within Intel's manufacturing organization. He was responsible for Fab/Sort Manufacturing from 2007-2011 and Assembly and Test from 2003 to 2007. From 2001 to 2003, he was responsible for the implementation of the 0.13-micron logic process technology across Intel's global factory network. From 1997 to 2001, Krzanich served as the Fab 17 plant manager, where he oversaw the integration of Digital Equipment Corporation's semiconductor manufacturing operations into Intel's manufacturing network. Prior to this role, Krzanich held plant and manufacturing manager roles at multiple Intel factories. Krzanich began his career at Intel in 1982 in New Mexico as a process engineer.

Renée James, 48, has also been elected president of the company. During her 25-year career at Intel, James has spearheaded the company's strategic expansion into providing proprietary and open source software and services for applications in security, cloud-based computing, and importantly, smartphones. In her most recent role as EVP and general manager of the Software and Services Group, she was responsible for Intel's global software and services strategy, revenue, profit, and product R&D. In this role, James led Intel's strategic relationships with the world's leading device and enterprise operating systems companies. Previously, she was the director and COO of Intel Online Services, Intel's datacenter services business. James was also part of the pioneering team working with independent software vendors to port applications to Intel Architecture and served as chief of staff for former Intel CEO Andy Grove. James began her career with Intel through the company's acquisition of Bell Technologies.
