Sohail Ahmed

Intel announced internally that Ahmed, senior vice president and general manager of the Santa Clara, Calif.-based company's Technology Group, is retiring.

With Ahmed stepping down, Intel said it is restructuring the Technology and Manufacturing Group into three groups: technology development, led by Intel CTO Mike Mayberry; manufacturing and operations, led by Intel executive Ann Kelleher; and global supply chain, led by Intel executive Randhir Thakur.

In leading Intel's new technology development group, Mayberry has stepped down from his role as leader of Intel Labs, which will be led in the interim by Intel executive Rich Uhlig as the company looks for a permanent successor, according to a company memo.


Don Joos

PGi, an Atlanta-based provider of collaboration solutions, appointed Don Joos as CEO, succeeding Ted Schrafft, who is retiring and will take on an advisory role through the end of 2018.

"During his 25-year tenure with PGi, Ted Schrafft has grown and evolved the company from what was once a small teleconferencing division within PGi to the global unified communications and collaboration company that it is today," Hubert de Pesquidoux, PGi's executive chairman, said in a statement. "We are appreciative of Ted's contributions and look forward to Don's leadership in this new role. Don and Ted will work closely together to ensure a seamless transition."

Joos was most recently president and CEO of ShoreTel. Prior to that, he served in a variety of executive roles at Avaya. He also previously worked at SiteStuff.


Kavitha Mariappan

Zscaler appointed Kavitha Mariappan as senior vice president of customer experience and transformation, a role that will have her lead global strategic initiatives related to customer-centric experiences throughout the organization.

"We believe Kavitha’s track record in rapidly translating technology into customer-centric value, mobilizing global teams and operations, and transforming them into high-growth businesses will be invaluable to our customers,” Jay Chaudhry, founder, chairman and CEO of Zscaler, said in a statement.

Prior to joining the San Jose, Calif.-based company, Mariappan was CMO at Split Software. Before that, she was vice president of marketing at Databricks. She has also held marketing, product management and engineering leadership roles at Maginatics, Riverbed and Cisco.
