Intel shuffles management team

Changes come as Intel tries to diversify its PC and data center operations

Intel has shuffled management as it enters a new fiscal year, appointing a new chief operating officer and new heads to run the PC and datacenter groups.

Intel named Brian Krzanich to chief operating officer, a post from which he will continue to run manufacturing, but also take on internal IT and human resources operations. Krzanich has been running Intel's manufacturing operations and was responsible for Intel's successful transition to the 22-nanometer process, which will result in the production of faster and more power efficient computing chips .

The company is also promoting Dadi Perlmutter, who was responsible for Intel's chip design and development, to chief product officer. He is viewed as Intel's second-in-command alongside Sean Maloney, who is now heading Intel's China operations.

Intel also promoted Kirk Skaugen to run Intel's PC Client Group, which was previously run by Mooly Eden. Skaugen was previously responsible for Intel's Data Center Group, growing the division's revenues from US$6.5 billion in 2009 to more than $10 billion in 2011.

"Kirk is a very capable executive with a track record running a large, complex and growing business -- Intel's data center business -- which made him the ideal person to take on management for Intel's largest product group by revenue," said Laura Anderson, an Intel spokeswoman.

Eden, known as the public face for Intel with his colorful presentations at press conferences, is moving to Israel to work there. Intel has a manufacturing plant in Israel and faces a competitive threat from Globalfoundries, a manufacturing company that is building a plant in Abu Dhabi.

The Data Center Group will now be run by Diane Bryant, previously Intel's CIO. Replacing Bryant as CIO will be Kim Stevenson, formerly the vice president of IT Global Operations and Services.

The management changes will be in effect in 30 days, and comes as Intel tries to diversify its PC and data center operations to keep up with the competitive landscape. The company is backing ultrabooks, which is a new category of thin-and-light laptops with tablet-like features. The chip maker is also expanding its data center portfolio with new supercomputing chips and software products.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
