VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger is stepping down after eight years in the role early in February to take over the company reins of his previous employer, Intel, from its outgoing chief Bob Swan. Before taking over as CEO of VMWare in 2012, and holding the position of president and chief operating officer at Dell-EMC for three years from September 2009, Gelsinger worked at Intel for 30 years in various roles, including serving as the chipmaker’s CTO. He will remain a board member of VMware once he departs on 12 February 2021, and is set to start his tenure as Intel’s CEO several days later. Pat said that it will be a “privilege and honor” to return to Intel to serve as its leader after having started his tech career there.
This first Virtually Speaking episode of 2021 is bittersweet for us as we welcome outgoing CEO Pat Gelsinger to discuss his move to Intel.
