SAN FRANCISCO — Intel on Oct. 4 announced that former chief executive Paul Otellini died in his sleep a day earlier, at the age of 66.

Otellini worked for Intel for some 40 years, serving as chief from 2005 until he retired in 2013. He was credited with positioning Intel operations for long-term growth in the face of economic recession and lifestyles shifting away from personal computers.

Intel brought in more revenue during Otellini’s eight-year stint as chief executive than it did during the previous 45 years combined, according to the company. — AFP
