Intel has poached its new chief information officer (CIO) Archana Deskus directly from HPE to lead its global IT operations.
Deskus will take up her position from 30 January and report to the chip maker's CFO George Davis, who joined the company last April from Qualcomm.
She was also CIO at HPE, a title that she held since 2017 and which saw her responsible for leading and driving transformation in its global IT operations.
"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 CEO Bob Swan.
"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."
Deskus takes over as CIO from Aziz Safa, VP of information technology, who occupied the position on an interim basis since the previous permanent incumbent Paula Tolliver departed Intel in September.
"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."
