Intel has announced that it’s Chief Engineering Officer Venkata Murthy Renduchintala is leaving the company. It had previously said that manufacturing problems will cause a six-month delay in the delivery of its next-generation, 7-nanometer products. Ann Kelleher will lead the development of 7-nanometer and 5-nanometer chip technology process. Mike Mayberry, the company’s chief technology officer who previously led the group, will consult and assist with the leadership transition until his retirement at the end of the year.

It further said that Renduchintala, whose responsibilities include process technologies like 7nm and manufacturing operations, will leave on third August. An Intel spokesperson also said that it did not plan to replace Renduchintala‘s role as chief engineering officer or as group president Technology, Systems Architecture and Client Group, which is being split into separate teams. Intel said that it is reorganising its technology, systems architecture and client group. Its new leaders will report directly to Chief Executive Officer Bob Swan.

Renduchintala was previously a top executive at Qualcomm. He served as executive vice president of Qualcomm Technologies and co-president of Qualcomm CDMA Technologies. He was responsible for its semiconductor business across computing and mobile segments.
