Effective immediately, Intel will divide its technology, systems architecture and customer group (TSCG) into the following teams, whose leaders will report directly to the CEO:
Technology development. Led by Dr Ann Kelleher, this team will now lead Intel’s technology development with a focus on the 7nm and 5nm processes.
Manufacturing and operations. Led by Keyvan Esfarjani, this team will continue Kelleher’s work by driving the product ramp and building a new manufacturing capacity.
Design engineering. This team will be temporarily led by Josh Walden, as Intel says it is “conducting an accelerated global search to identify a permanent world-class leader.”
Architecture, software and graphics. This team will continue to be led by Raja Koduri and will be responsible for the development of Intel’s software architecture and strategy, as well as the dedicated graphics product portfolio. It will also continue to invest in software capacity as a strategic asset and further develop software engineering with expertise in the cloud, platforms, solutions and services, says Intel.
Supply Chain. This team will continue to be led by Dr Randhir Thakur and will ensure that the supply chain is a competitive advantage for Intel.
“I look forward to working directly with these talented and experienced technology leaders, each of whom is committed to moving Intel forward during this critical time of execution,” Intel CEO Bob Swan said in a prepared statement. “I also want to thank [chief engineering officer] Murthy [Renduchintala, who is leaving the firm] for its leadership in helping Intel transform our technology platform. We have the most diverse leading product portfolio in our history, and with our six pillars of innovation and disaggregation strategy, we have much more flexibility in how we build, package and deliver these products to our clients. “
