Intel CEO’s Qualcomm Recruit Causes Upheaval in Senior Ranks – Bloomberg


Intel Corp. Chief Executive Officer Brian Krzanich broke with decades of company history last year by making an outsider, Murthy Renduchintala of rival Qualcomm Inc., his No. 2.

One departure didn’t come by design. Aicha Evans, the head of mobile and one of the technology industry’s most senior black women, recently tendered herresignation, according to people with knowledge of the matter. That’s a blow to efforts by Krzanich to recruit more women and minorities. News of the planned exit, first reported by Bloomberg, sent Krzanich scrambling to get Evans to change her mind, said people who asked not to be identified discussing personnel matters.

Intel has struggled in mobile since long before Evans took over the division in July. Despite investing billions of dollars over two decades, Intel ended 2015 with about 1 percent market share in smartphone processors.
