Intel CEO Search Yields New Candidates

Two new names have landed on the list of executives Intel is considering to become its CEO—Anand Chandrasekher, a former Intel and Qualcomm executive, and Cristiano Amon, Qualcomm’s current president—a person briefed on the chip giant’s search said.

Intel is still in the early stages of its hunt for a replacement for former CEO Brian Krzanich, who unexpectedly resigned from the company in June following the discovery of a past consensual relationship with a subordinate. Messrs. Amon and Chandrasekher, who haven’t before been identified publicly as possible replacements, join at least a half-dozen other candidates Intel is considering for the job, including two current Intel executives—data center head Navin Shenoy and chief engineering officer Venkata M. Renduchintala—the person briefed on the search said. External candidates in the mix for the job include former Intel executives Diane Bryant, Renee James, Stacy Smith and Pat Gelsinger, the person said.
