Intel’s Uri Frank leaves the company weeks after being promoted
Company thanks him for more than 20 years of service; associates say he received a lucrative offer elsewhere
Uri Frank, a corporate Vice President at Intel, announced that he will be leaving the company a short time after he was promoted. The reasons for his departure were not immediately apparent, with associates suggesting he had received an offer for a lucrative position elsewhere.
Earlier this month, Intel announced the promotion of six Israeli executives up the corporate ranks, with Frank being appointed corporate Vice President, a position Intel described as being one of the most senior roles at the company
“After more than 20 years of tremendous contribution to Intel, Uri Frank has decided to retire for personal reasons. Frank joined Intel while still a student in 1997, since that time he has excelled in his technological and leadership skills and has inspired many teams around the world in developing the next generations of Core and SoC products to a high and uncompromising standard for the benefit of the company’s customers. Intel wishes him great success in his future endeavors and thanks him for his actions, dedication, and personal and professional generosity over the years,” the company said in a statement.
