David Zinsner will join chipmaker, as Intel says head of its client computing group leaving at the end of the month
Mr. Bryant has had a high-profile run at Intel, a company he joined in 1992. He presented Intel products at this month’s CES technology show in Las Vegas. That’s heading for a new opportunity, Intel said.
The chip company tapped Michelle Johnston Holthaus, executive vice president and general manager of the Sales, Marketing and Communications Group, as its successor. The group she will now oversee, generated $30.38 billion in revenue for the nine months ended September 25, 2021, and $40.06 billion in 2020.
The personnel changes come nearly a year after Intel said that Pat Gelsinger would take over as chief executive after several missteps by the company. Mr. Gelsinger has since tried to fast-track Intel’s turnaround, including a commitment to invest heavily in chip manufacturing and a pledge to return the company to a state of producing the world’s best chips.
Ms. Johnston Holthaus will transition to her new role in the coming months and Intel will be looking for a new person to lead its sales, marketing and communications team.
Mr. Zissner, Micron’s head of finance, will join Intel next Monday. He was with memory-chip maker Micron since February 2018. Prior to that, he was the president and chief operating officer of 5G specialist Affirmed Networks, a company that operates Microsoft. Corporation
Acquired in 2020. He also served as Senior Vice President of Finance and CFO at Analog Devices, both Inc.
and Intersil Corporation
Micron on Monday said it has begun the search for its next head of finance and Chief Business Officer Sumit Sadana has assumed the additional role of interim CFO.
Intel previously said that CFO George Davis planned to retire in May, but would remain with the company in an advisory capacity.
