Justin Rattner Stepping Down as Intel CTO

Justin Rattner is stepping down as chief technology officer and director of Intel Labs. Justin’s transition is required under Intel’s corporate bylaws which state that Intel employees may not serve as corporate officers past the age of 65. Rattner will take a personal leave immediately to deal with a pressing family matter and will return to Intel at a later date in a role to be determined. Intel Labs will report to Intel President Renأ©e James until further decisions related to its leadership are made.

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich thanked Rattner for his leadership in creating one of the leading research organizations in the high tech industry. Rattner joined Intel in 1973 and was named its first principal engineer in 1979, its fourth Intel Fellow in 1988 and was in the first group of Intel Fellows to be named Senior Fellow in 2001. Rattner has been a prominent keynote speaker at every U.S. IDF since 2005, more than any other presenter to-date. He is a recognized worldwide leader in high-performance computing and is a sought after spokesperson in this field.
