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.

This is excellent for Apple and terrifying for any employees that get caught in his gaze. :eek:

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.

Who do you recommend? Be specific with a few names, and explain why they'd be an outstanding choice.

I’ll bet they backed up the Brinks truck to his house and just dumped money for him to stay.

It isn't a loss to Intel considering Intel fans thought it was a weird idea to have him at the helm.

There is this guy who was _really_ successful at creating chips with twice the performance of competitors. Yeah, absolutely no loss for Intel. And does Intel have fans? Except to keep their processors cool?

Steve Jobs wasn't Arab. His parents were American and Syrian. American ≠ Arab, and Syrian ≠ Arab. So Apple was never run by an Arab. He was raised by an American family, so no relation to Syrian culture, and definitely no relation to Arab culture. In other words, what you say is total nonsense.

And the current CEO is the one who changed Apple from one of the most successful companies to _the_ most successful company. Whatever _you_ think of him, the fact is that Tim Cook is highly successful as Apple's CEO.
