Longtime insider will lead Intel

NEW YORK — Intel, a pillar of Silicon Valley, is following its traditions and promoting an insider to the job of CEO. The world’s largest chip maker is tasking chief operating officer Brian Krzanich with steering it through an industry shake-up that is seeing tablets and smartphones overshadow Intel’s base in personal computers.

Intel said that Krzanich will replace Paul Otellini on May 16. Six months ago, Otellini, 62, announced his surprise decision to resign and will end a nearly 40-year career with Intel, including eight years as chief executive.
