Dadi “David” Perlmutter, a well-respected executive VP who had been a leading but unsuccessful contender in the race to succeed former CEO Paul Otellini, will be leaving the company early next year, after 34 years. Intel confirmed the move in a regulatory filing made public today.
Perlmutter, who heads up Intel’s Architecture group, the business unit that designs and manufacturers its chips that go into personal computers, servers and other devices, will leave the company in February.
Typical, Kranzich needs a goat. So K takes over Arch responsibility himself, wonder who is going to be the next fall guy.
