In 1993, Otellini introduced Pentium microprocessors to the Microprocessor Products Group. In addition, he also served as the window between Intel and IBM, and as the technical assistant of Andy Grove.
In 2001, Intel appointed Paul Otellini, 51 years old at that time, as its president and chief operating officer, to be responsible for managing the daily operation of the company. Otellini has been the president and chief operating officer of Intel since 2002, and was elected to the board of directors of Intel in the same year.
On March 18, 2005, Otellini served as the global general manager of Intel; On May 18 of the same year, he replaced Craig Barrett as the fifth CEO of Intel. According to reports, Otellini has always been an important force in persuading Apple to work together. At the same time, Otellini prefers Mac OS X to traditional Windows. When Windows Vista was released, Otellini said, "We have been in contact with Windows for a long time, and we should be closer to Apple." In addition, Otellini also pays special attention to the development of China's IT industry and the training of local talents, which has affected the vigorous development of China's IT industry.
In 2006, Otellini was responsible for handling the largest layoff since Intel, and 10500 employees (nearly 10% of the company's employees) were forced to be laid off. This layoff, whether in product manufacturing, design or other redundancy, lost about $3 billion in 2008. On March 26, 2007, Otellini personally announced in the Great Hall of the People that he would build a semiconductor manufacturing factory (Intel Fab 68 Factory) with a capacity of 300 mm wafers of nearly 2.5 billion dollars in Dalian, China, which is also Intel's first wafer factory in Asia. On November 4, 2009, Otellini said in Beijing that Moore's Law is still valid, and the company will continue to promote the development of the industry in accordance with Moore's Law.
Otellini is famous for being good at sales. It launched a price war with AMD, promoted the Sayon brand, and demonstrated Intel at international conferences and Wall Street. He did not have a doctorate in science or even a background in engineering. Analysts believe that he is more like a sales expert.
Otellini led Intel to glory, and he also injected more commercial information into Intel, rather than all advocating technology. Mr. Otellini is a great leader. He is the first non-technical senior executive of Intel. Under his leadership, Intel successfully transformed and adjusted its organization and cost structure; High K, 3D triple transistor and guide semiconductor innovation; With capital, we have set foot in the fields of security, software and mobile communication, and successfully invested in many start-ups; In 2010, it announced its cloud computing strategy to enter the smartphone and tablet market. However, it is a pity that Intel has always maintained its position in the PC field, but it is at a loss for the development of the emerging mobile phone terminals. We have a clear contrast from Qualcomm. In any case, we should be grateful to the Intel Group led by him for changing the PC market.
