New Manufacturing, Supply Chain And Operations Group

Intel internally announced its first major restructuring on June 7, saying that Intel will merge its Manufacturing and Operations group and Global Supply chain group into a new organization called Manufacturing, Supply Chain and Operations, according to a memo seen by CRN.

This and other changes were characterized in the memo as instrumental to the company’s transition to its new IDM 2.0 strategy, a major evolution of Intel’s integrated device manufacturing approach that involves expanding internal manufacturing capacity, ramping up the use of external foundries for certain products and launching Intel Foundry Services to make chips designed by other companies.

The memo said the new manufacturing group will be led by Keyvan Esfarjani (pictured), the executive who has been leading Manufacturing and Operations, while Randhir Thakur, who had been Intel’s chief supply chain officer, will focus on his role as president of Intel Foundry Services. All of Intel’s current global supply chain, manufacturing and operations leaders will now report to Esfarjani.

“By merging these two organization[s], we will create an end-to-end capability and accountability to drive world class execution and support to partner organizations by leveraging our top-ranking supply chain capabilities. Integrating our supply chain functions with M&O will also increase our agility and response times for our customers, particularly in a time of greatly increased demand for our products and technologies,” said the memo, which was signed by Esfarjani, Thakur and Michelle Johnston Holthaus, who is Intel’s chief revenue officer.

Intel previously declined to comment on the changes outlined in the June 7 memo. However, Esfarjani’s official title has been updated to senior vice president and general manager of Manufacturing, Supply Chain and Operations on Intel’s website.
