Pat Gelsinger, a top executive who has been with Intel for 30 years, is leaving the company for EMC, an EMC spokeswoman said Monday.
Storage vendor EMC will hire Gelsinger as president and chief operating officer for the company’s information infrastructure product portfolio, the spokeswoman said, asking not to be named. Gelsinger, currently co-manager of Intel’s core digital enterprise group, has long been a key executive for Intel. He has also held the positions of chief technology officer and research head at Intel.
The EMC spokeswoman declined to say when the move would take effect. An Intel spokeswoman declined to comment but said Gelsinger is listed as a keynote speaker on the Web site for next week’s Intel Developer Forum.
Gelsinger’s move was first reported in The New York Times, which said Intel plans to announce a raft of management changes including his departure on Monday. A report in The Wall Street Journal said Gelsinger will immediately take over EMC’s storage product operations.
