2. Intel CEO Krzanich Resigns Over Violation Of Company Conduct Policy

The news broke early on the morning of June 21 when Intel announced that CEO Brian Krzanich (pictured) had resigned after the company learned that he had had a consensual relationship with an Intel employee in violation of the chipmaker's non-fraternization policy.

It was a difficult turn of events for Intel, which has been transforming itself from its PC-centric roots to focus on new areas such as data center systems and artificial intelligence. It also came just weeks before the company's 50th anniversary.

The company named Chief Financial Officer Robert Swan to be interim CEO and has been conducting a search for a new CEO since. Krzanich had been with Intel since 1982, starting as an engineer and eventually being named chief operating officer in 2012 and Intel's sixth CEO in May 2013.
