Intel Corp. CEO Brian Krzanich Wednesday (May 3) announced a new leader for its Data Center Group (DCG) due to a leave of absence being taken by Diane Bryant, the business unit's president.
Krzanich said in an email to Intel employees that Bryant would be stepping away for six to eight months to tend to a personal family matter. Navin Shenoy, formerly general manager of the Client Computing Group, was named general manager of the DCG.
Krzanich said in the email to employees that, due to the extended duration of Bryant's leave, an interim leader for the DCG was not a possibility.
The DCG is Intel's second largest business unit in terms of revenue, trailing only the Client Computing Group. In the first quarter, the DCG had revenue of about $4.2 billion, or about 28 percent of the company's total revenue for the quarter.
"DCG is a central part of our transformation and corporate strategy to make Intel the driving force of the data revolution," Krzanich wrote in the email.
Bryant became leader of the DCG in 2012 after four years as Intel's chief information officer. In the email, Krzanich credited Bryant with transforming DCG "from a server-centric group to a business that spans servers, network and storage across all end-user segments, and with product lines and business models that extend beyond the traditional."
He added, "I want to thank Diane for her outstanding leadership and I will announce her next role upon her return."
Prior to becoming GM of the Client Computing Group, Shenoy was general manager for Intel Asia Pacific. Earlier in his Intel career, Shenoy spent three years as technical assistant to former Intel President and CEO Paul Otellini, assisting Otellini in the development and implementation of Intel’s long-term corporate strategy and the daily management of the company's business.
Krzanich appointed Murthy Renduchintala, president of Intel's Client and IoT Businesses and Systems Architecture Group, acting leader of the Client Computing Group. Krzanich said more information about the succession plan for Shenoy as GM of the Client Computing Group would be communicated in coming weeks.
