New CEOs At Intel, Qualcomm, IBM’s ‘NewCo’ And More
After a year of major executive shakeups at IBM, AT&T and Nutanix, 2021 is following up with equally significant changes in top technology leadership positions at some of the IT industry’s leading companies.
Case in point: January saw not one, but two CEO switch-ups at two leading semiconductor companies: Intel and Qualcomm. But what was Intel’s gain was VMware’s loss with the virtualization giant’s longtime leader leaving to return to his employer of 30 years.
Other IT companies also named new CEOs last month, including Certify, Forcepoint, Infinidat, IBM’s “NewCo” planned spinoff and Incorta. There were also big personnel moves at Microsoft, LogicMonitor, AMD, HP Inc., Unisys, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Samsung, Hootsuite and Sage.
What follows are 30 notable IT executive moves from January 2021.
