Pat Gelsinger becomes Intel's New CEO
Intel officially announces Pat Gelsinger as the company’s eighth chief executive officer in its history. This marks Pat’s return to the company, after becoming an accomplished CEO and industry veteran with more than four decades of technology and leadership experience – including 30 years at Intel, where he began his career.
Born in rural Robesonia, Pennsylvania, Pat received his associate degree from Lincoln Technical Institute at the age of 18 and moves to Silicon Valley to start his career at Intel as a quality control technician. While at Intel, Pat graduated with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Santa Clara University. In 1985, Pat earned his first of eight patents.
When Intel introduced the 386 microprocessor in 1988, Pat was the design engineer No. 4 on the design team. And in that same year, he graduates from Stanford University with a master’s degree in electrical engineering and computer science. In 1992, Pat went on to become the vice president of the Intel Products Group and general manager of the Personal Computer Enhancement Division in the Business Communications Division.
