Chutes & Ladders: Intel gets a CTO

Intel named Justin Rattner as CTO, a position that had been vacant for nearly a year since Intel's first CTO, Pat Gelsinger, left to head up Intel's enterprise product division. Rattner has been with Intel since 1973 and most recently served as director of the company's "corporate technology group," carrying many responsibilities of a CTO without the actual title. Rattner takes on the new position at a crucial transitional phase for Intel as they are looking to make the move from a microprocessor company to a platform company. Intel also appointed senior VP Eric Kim to CMO, named four VPs to senior VPs and elected four others as corporate officers.
