Intel makes sweeping changes, Intel Security loses its independence

Former McAfee division integrated into Intel operations, senior Intel executives depart

Intel Security has been formally integrated into Intel operations under the leadership of general manager, Chris Young, removing the last traces of the independent McAfee division it acquired in 2010.

It comes 18 months after the news broke that Intel would rebrand its McAfee security division as Intel Security.

In a statement, Intel Corporation said the integration would deliver better technologies for its customers and more effective operations that would enable Intel Security to advance the state of security across the industry.

In an extensive release, the Corporation also has announced that Intel President, Renée James, will step down to pursue an external CEO role.

James has agreed to stay at Intel until January in order to transition the Executive Office. She issued a message to employees about her plans.

Other leadership and organisational changes that are being made to streamline operations and better position Intel for growth include:

  • Intel Capital president, Arvind Sodhani, will retire in January after a distinguished 35-year career with the company. President of mergers and acquisitions, Wendell Brooks, will take an expanded role to also become President of Intel Capital. The company said merging these teams under one leader will allow clear focus across all investment opportunities for Intel.
  • Intel Communication and Devices Group general manager, Aicha Evans, has been elevated to the company's Management Committee, reflecting the leadership role she plays across Intel's business and the importance of communication and mobility to the company's growth strategy and product portfolio.
  • Josh Walden, general manager of Intel's New Technology Group, now leads all product and research teams that create and deploy new technology categories, such as interactive computing devices, perceptual computing and wearable devices. He is responsible for expanding the power of Moore's Law into entirely new categories.
  • Associated with these changes, Intel executives Hermann Eul and Mike Bell will leave the company after a transition period.

"We are aligning our leadership structure to continue to become more efficient in order to deliver the benefits of our strategy even faster than before," Krzanich said in a statement.

"Over the past 28 years, Renée has contributed immeasurably to Intel," he continued. "On behalf of the Board and management team, we sincerely thank Renée for her tireless efforts toward building the business that we have today, and we fully support her in this decision."
