Unexpected summarizes Paul Otellini’s stepping-down from Intel as its CEO. He will be stepping down in May of 2013. Intel’s long time lead executive will be retiring from the behemoth of a company and industry that he has dedicated the last 40 years of his (amazing) life to, leaving behind a legacy that has seen Intel’s dominance in the x86 field grow to almost unapproachable levels — godly, even.
Some interesting facts about him is that he is the fifth chief executive in Intel’s history. He also oversaw the processor revolution that followed the lackluster Pentium 4, but also played a role in Apple’s famous transition from PowerPC to Intel, several years ago.
PR after the break.
