A series of modifications have occurred in Intel’s upper administration. In a couple of days, two senior vice presidents had been promoted, and a Volkswagen VP joined Intel’s Mobileye subsidiary to work on the robotaxi enterprise. In the meantime, Intel communications executive Cormac Conroy left the firm.
Intel this week has promoted two company VP to executive VP. People joining a group include Raja Koduri, Jim Keller, and others.
The first of the couple is Gregory Bryant, who was general manager of Intel’s Client Computing Unit, a position he assumed two years ago in 2017 after Navin Shenoy shifted to the Data Center Unit, due to a departure of Intel lifer Diane Bryant.
The other promotion went to Michelle Holthaus. She is now general manager of Intel’s Marketing and Communications Unit.
In the meantime, corporate VP of the Communication and Devices Unit has left Intel, CRN reported on Monday. He headed Intel’s 4G and 5G modem subsidiary, but further RF solutions, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, WiGig and GNSS. Intel said that the resignations were announced to employees in early July
Intel Mobileye has hired Johann Jungwirth as VP of Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS), the concept whereby users consume automobile services on-demand rather than owning one, driven by autonomous vehicles. He comes from Volkswagen, where he served as government vice chairman for mobility services. Previously, he was holding senior positions at Apple and Mercedes-Benz.
Jungwirth will still work with Volkswagen as a part of his new role at Mobileye. Both firms, along with Champion Motors, declared in October 2018 to invest in and commercialize an autonomous EV ride-hailing business in Israel.
