Andy Bryant has stepped down as Chairman and the Intel Board, and Lead Independent Director Omar Ishrak has been elected to replace him, effective immediately.

Also, Alyssa Henry has been elected to the board. Her election marks the seventh new independent director added to Intel’s board since 2016.

The changes took place at the company's January 15 board meeting.

Bryant will remain on the board until the end of Intel’s 2020 annual stockholders’ meeting in May. He notified the board in March 2019 that he did not intend to stand for re-election. He has served as Chairman for over seven years.

“It has been my great honor to serve as Intel chairman, and I plan to retire from the board in May with great optimism about Intel’s future,” Bryant said. “I have full confidence in Omar leading the board, which is fortunate to have his expertise at leading an innovative, global company."

Ishrak was elected to Intel’s board of directors in March 2017. He is the Chairman and CEO of medical technology company Medtronic.

Alyssa Henry is Seller Lead for Square, a role she’s held since 2014.
