Intel has announced a number of structural changes to the company, including consolidating major product divisions into one umbrella group.
According to a statement, the changes will mean Paul Otellini, Intel’s CEO, will devote more time to developing corporate strategy and the company’s growth initiatives.
The chipmaker will consolidate all major product divisions into the new Intel Architecture Group (IAG), to be co-managed by executive vice presidents Sean Maloney and Dadi Perlmutter. Maloney will be responsible for business and operations, while Perlmutter will lead product development and architecture.
A number of groups will operate under the new IAG umbrella, including micro-architecture planning, microprocessor and chipset development, wireless and ‘system on a chip’ solutions.
Intel’s Technology and Manufacturing Group will now report to chief administrative officer Andy Bryant, while mobile and desktop product operations will be consolidated in the PC Client Group, led by Mooly Eden.
Following Maloney’s move to IAG, Tom Kilroy will become responsible for Intel’s Sales and Marketing Group. Kilroy previously co-managed processors for enterprise-class applications.
In an unrelated announcement, Intel’s general counsel Bruce Sewell and Pat Gelsinger, who co-managed the Digital Enterprise Group, have decided to leave the company.
