Intel Announces Executive Leadership Changes

In an email to employees Monday, Intel Corporation CEO Brian Krzanich and Dr. Venkata “Murthy” Renduchintala, president of the Client and Internet of Things (IoT) Businesses and Systems Architecture Group, announced executive leadership team changes.

Today we are writing to share two important leadership transitions on our executive leadership team.

Doug Davis has announced that he will retire from Intel at the end of 2016. This is a decision Doug has been considering for some time, and he has decided that he would like to devote more of his time to family, friends, and other interests. Doug first started with Intel in 1984 and has held numerous leadership roles over his 32-year career here. Most recently, Doug has led the Internet of Things Group through a tremendous transition and growth period. Doug’s deep acumen, strong customer relationships, and leadership in the IOT sector has been instrumental to our growth in this space, and the emergence of Intel as one of the most important end-to-end players in the Internet of Things. Doug will continue in his role until a successor is named and an orderly transition is complete.

Additionally, Kirk Skaugen has also decided to leave Intel for his next career opportunity. Kirk has held leadership roles across the organization since joining Intel in 1992, including leadership of our Data Center and Connected Systems Group, PC Client Group, and most recently, leadership of our Client Computing Group (CCG). We are incredibly appreciative of Kirk’s drive, the innovation he’s brought to the PC and Data Center, and his customer orientation. His strategy of segmentation and innovation in our core businesses has been a strong asset to Intel. Kirk’s last day at Intel will also be April 8th. We are pleased to announce that Navin Shenoy will assume responsibility for the CCG organization, and will join Intel’s management committee (MCM).

Please join us in congratulating Doug and Kirk on their next adventures. Each of them have been instrumental to Intel’s success and our executive leadership team over the past years. They will be greatly missed, but we are excited for the good things ahead for each of them. Please give Navin, Kirk and Doug your full support through the transition.
