Johny Srouji Reportedly Staying at Apple, Not in the Running for Intel CEO

Following a report last week that Apple's chipmaking chief Johny Srouji was on Intel's list of candidates for CEO, The Motley Fool's Ashraf Eassa says that Srouji has informed his team that he will be staying at Apple.

Eassa, who follows Intel very closely, has offered no other details on the situation, so it's unclear whether Srouji was never seriously considered, withdrew his name, or was passed over as Intel narrowed its list.


Srouji spent over a decade at Intel from 1993 to 2005, bookended by a couple of brief stints at IBM. He joined Apple in 2008 to lead development of Apple's custom A-series chips starting with the A4 that appeared in the iPhone 4.

Since late 2015, Srouji has been a member of Apple's senior executive staff, reporting directly to Tim Cook and overseeing Apple's custom work on batteries, application processors, storage controllers, sensors silicon, display silicon, and other chipsets.

We all knew this. Intel is a sinking ship without a captain and Apple will once again dominate over big blue.
You do know "Big Blue" is IBM right?

The same IBM Apple just partnered with:

Apple was at its best when run by an Arab - Steve Jobs - so it’s about time another Arab took over. Anything’s better than the current CEO, who is an over-promoted warehouse manager.
Flat out sad the genius of Tim Cook, recognized by your leader Steve Jobs, has been reduced to this kind of nonsense from the uninformed.
