Gelsinger’s Associates Are Coming On Board
It hasn’t even been a month since Intel appointed Pat Gelsinger (pictured) as its new CEO, and three industry veterans who have worked with Gelsinger in the past are already following him to the chipmaker.
The Santa Clara, Calif.-based company announced on Jan. 13 that Gelsinger, who is currently VMware’s CEO, will return to the semiconductor giant as its new leader following an 11-year absence from Intel, where Gelsinger worked for the first 30 years of his career.
In the chipmaker’s earnings call last month, Gelsinger made his first public comments as Intel’s incoming CEO and promised that former employees will be returning with him to help tackle the company’s manufacturing issues and fight against growing competition from AMD and elsewhere.
“You’ll be seeing we’re making adjustments in the leadership of our product development teams as well, where talent is going to come into the company,” he said.
Glenn Hinton is now one of three people with ties to Gelsinger who have been hired by Intel since the CEO shakeup was announced. The other two people were announced last week: Sunil Shenoy and Guido Appenzeller. What follows are the most important details you need to know about Hinton, Shenoy and Appenzeller.
