Another Intel veteran is returning to his hometown. Sanjay Natarajan left the company in 2015 after 22 years with it. Before leaving Intel, he served as vice president of technology and manufacturing. Since 2017, Natarajan has been the Vice President of Applied Materials, one of Intel’s partners supplying equipment for the production of integrated circuits.
Last Wednesday, Natarajan announced via his LinkedIn page that he was returning “home to Intel” as vice president and one of the managers of the logic development department.
“Throughout my career, I’ve been motivated by the belief that technology can improve the lives of everyone on the planet. For more than 50 years, Intel has been a leader in the development of new technologies, and I firmly believe that the company can once again lead the industry on the path of technological advancement. “, – wrote Natarajan.
Intel, which has long been a market leader in microprocessor technologies, has experienced serious difficulties in mastering new production processes in recent years. These delays allowed its competitors to take the lead.
Selected as Intel’s new CEO, Pat Gelsinger hopes to restore the company to its former technological glory. Previously, Gelsinger had already held one of the executive positions at Intel – he was its first CTO. However, he left the company in 2009 and then headed VMware, a software company, for nine years. In January of this year, it became known that Bob Swan (Bob Swan) is leaving the post of CEO of Intel, and his place will go to Gelsinger.
Natarajan is the third eminent veteran to return to Intel after Gelsinger was elected CEO. Earlier it became known that Sunil Shenoy, an experienced veteran who worked at Intel until 2014 and has 33 years of experience in this company, will return to the role of senior vice president of the engineering group. In addition, Glenn Hinton returned to the company. He has worked for Intel since 1980 in various processor design positions. He was involved in the creation of the world’s first superscalar processor, the i960, and led the development of the P6 series processors, and then the Pentium Pro, Pentium II, Pentium III and Pentium IV, Willamette and Nehalem.
