Intel has appointed Archana (Archie) Deskus as senior vice president and chief information officer (CIO), effective Jan. 30. Deskus will oversee Intel’s global information technology operations and report to Intel Chief Financial Officer George Davis.
Deskus joins Intel from Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, where she was senior vice president and chief information officer since 2017, responsible for leading — and driving significant transformation within — its global IT operations. Since 2003 and prior to HPE, she has held CIO roles at Baker Hughes, Ingersoll Rand, Timex and United Technologies.
“At Intel, the CIO job is critical as we expand our growth opportunity and showcase the power of IT to unleash the potential of data for our customers and across our operations,” said Bob Swan, Intel’s CEO. “Archie has deep experience and a strong track record of driving operational excellence and transformation in complex global IT environments. She will be an outstanding addition to our management team.”
“Intel is going through an exciting and historic transformation as it extends the reach and impact of information technology in an era of data,” Deskus said. “I am thrilled to join the Intel management team and to lead an extraordinarily innovative global IT group at this strategic inflection point for the technology industry.”
