Intel has announced a series of management changes, including the stepping down of president Renée James, and the official assimilation of McAfee.
James will stay on until January 2016, when she will take on a chief executive role elsewhere. Intel did not say where this would be.
Intel confirmed that the security element of the business formerly known as McAfee is now part of Intel and will be run by Intel Security Group general manager Chris Young.
Chief executive Brian Krzanich (pictured) also announced that Arvind Sodhani, president of Intel Capital, is stepping down and that his role will be combined and taken on by president of mergers and acquisitions Wendell Brooks.
Intel executives Hermann Eul and Mike Bell are leaving the company after a transition period, while Josh Walden, general manager of Intel's New Technology Group, will lead innovative product and development at the firm. General manager Aicha Evans is promoted to the Intel management committee.
"We are aligning our leadership structure to continue to become more efficient in order to deliver the benefits of our strategy even faster than before," said Krzanich (pictured above).
"Over the past 28 years, Renée has contributed immeasurably to Intel. On behalf of the board and management team, we sincerely thank Renée for her tireless efforts toward building the business that we have today, and we fully support her in this decision."
James said in an email to colleagues that this was the right time for her to leave, and that the other management changes would continue to keep Intel innovating.
She admitted that the decision was not easy, but that she was searching for a chief executive role.
"When Brian and I were appointed to our current roles, I knew then that being the leader of a company was something that I desired as part of my own journey. Now is the right time for me to take that next step," she said.
"Intel has been my second family. It is an amazing company that has changed the way people live their lives, and I am proud to have contributed to that in a meaningful way.
"We have a strong leadership team led by Brian and are pushing forward in new and exciting areas. You are in good hands."
