Intel said it is appointing Kumud Srinivasan as president for Intel India.
With over 3,500 people, India is Intel’s largest non-manufacturing site outside the US.
Kumud succeeds Praveen Vishakantaiah who is relocating to the U.S. as the General Manager of Client Solutions and Technology group in the PC Client Group for Intel.
Srinivasan has been with Intel for over 25 years and has held several business and information systems positions within Intel’s Manufacturing and Information Technology organizations. In her previous role, Kumud was Vice President and General Manager of IT for Silicon Software and Services and also led Intel’s internal full-service consulting practice.
“Today Intel India is a major design site for Intel and is one of the fastest-growing emerging markets powering our growth. We have a solid foundation here and a stellar reputation as being a great place to work. We will continue to innovate in order to continue transforming people’s lives through technology. I am excited that my new job is taking me back to my cultural roots,” said Ms. Srinivasan.
Ms Srinivasan was born and raised in India and received her bachelor’s degree in economics from Calcutta University in 1981 and her master’s degree in information and library studies from Syracuse University in 1984.
Praveen Vishakantaiah, who relocates to the U.S. in his new role, said, “I’ve had the privilege of leading Intel India for the past five years and have seen the site grow and contribute significantly to Intel’s success worldwide. We are fortunate to have a strong and stable leadership team with a tremendous vision for growing this market and I am very confident that under Kumud’s leadership, Intel will continue to connect more Indians to exciting opportunities through technology”.
