Appenzeller announced on Jan. 27 that he is joining Intel as CTO of the company’s Data Platforms Group, whose portfolio includes Xeon CPUs, Optane memory and FPGAs, among other things.

Unlike Hinton and Shenoy, Appenzeller did not previously work at Intel. However, he had previously worked for Gelsinger at VMware as CTO of cloud and networking from 2014 to 2019.

“Intel has a long and storied history. However, as it has been widely publicized, it today faces a range of challenges,” Appenzeller said in his LinkedIn post. “At the same time, Intel still has enormous strength in their data center CPUs, massive scale, a deep and diverse portfolio and a great team at the DPG. In the end, my decision was based on the belief that the opportunities outweigh the challenges. And judging by the recent move by Pat Gelsinger, I am not the only one with that view.”

Appenzeller was most recently chief product officer at Yubico, a company that provides a hardware authentication device known as the YubiKey. Before his time at VMware, Appenzeller was CEO and co-founder of Big Switch Networks, a software-defined networking vendor that was acquired by data center and large campus networking specialist Arista Networks last year.
