30 Notable IT Executive Moves: November 2011


Tudor Brown

An expected move, but a milestone all the same: Tudor Brown, president and co-founder of chipmaker ARM Holdings, will retire in May 2012. Brown, who'd served ARM for 21 years, won't seek re-election to ARM's board and will leave the U.K.-based company on May 3. Brown's tenure -- he became a board member in 2001 and president of ARM in 2008 -- coincided with an expanding profile for the chipmaker, whose products appear in a range of mobile devices, including Apple's iPhone and iPad.
