Another major leadership change is underway at Intel. Last month, Paul Otellini was replaced by Brian Krzanich as CEO. Now, the chipmaker says its Chief Technology Officer is also about to step down.
Here's the official word from Intel's Chips blog:
Justin Rattner is stepping down as chief technology officer and director of Intel Labs. Justin’s transition is required under Intel’s corporate bylaws which state that Intel employees may not serve as corporate officers past the age of 65. Rattner will take a personal leave immediately to deal with a pressing family matter and will return to Intel at a later date in a role to be determined. Intel Labs will report to Intel President Renée James until further decisions related to its leadership are made.
Rattner has worked at Intel for most of the company's existence. He joined in 1973, just five years after Intel's founding, and went on to be named its first principal engineer in 1979. If you've followed our Intel Developer Forum coverage in the past, you've probably seen Rattner's mug—as Intel points out, he's been a "prominent keynote speaker" at each IDF show since 2005.
