On His Replacement As Channel Chief
I wanted to get the right guy in place to help keep the worldwide RCO going. And Intel said I could pick my successor, so I chose Maurits Tichelman (pictured). He's been running Europe's channel for quite a long time; he's been in that job the entire time I had been in mine. We've been peers when we both worked for Sophia Chew (currently vice president of the Software and Services Group, formerly vice president and general manager for Intel's worldwide RCO). So the timing was right for him as well.
