9. Gelsinger Brings Veteran Engineers Back To Intel
Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger brought back several veteran engineers last year to help enact his comeback plan after he took the chipmaker’s top leadership post in February 2021.
Even before Gelsinger was instated as Intel’s new CEO, his return helped convince Sunil Shenoy (pictured), a 33-year company veteran who left Intel in 2014, to rejoin the company as senior vice president and general manager of Intel’s Design Engineering Group. A few months later, Intel announced that Shlomit Weiss, a 28-year company veteran who worked on the dual-core and Skylake CPUs, would work alongside Shenoy as co-general manager of the Design Engineering Group from her home country of Israel.
Other company veterans that have returned under Gelsinger’s tenure include Glenn Hinton, Bob Brennan and Stuart Pann. Gelsinger also attracted one of his former lieutenants at VMware: Greg Lavender, who became CTO and head of the new Intel Software and Advanced Technology Group.
