Intel names Shlomit Weiss SVP and general manager of Design Engineering


Intel is appointing Shlomit Weiss as senior vice president and co-general manager (GM) of the company’s Design Engineering Group (DEG). She will replace senior vice president Sunil Shenoy, who will retire at the end of the year, said Intel in a statement.

Ms. Weiss will lead the company’s design, development, validation and manufacturing support of intellectual properties (IPs) and system-on-chips (SoCs). She will be reporting to Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger, and joining the company’s executive leadership team.

Ms. Weiss returned to Intel last year as co-GM of DEG with Mr. Shenoy, specifically leading client product design engineering and the Intel architecture core portfolio. Before rejoining Intel, Ms. Weiss was senior vice president of silicon engineering at Mellanox, now part of Nvidia.

Ms. Weiss has spent 28 years at Intel in engineering and leadership roles, including as leader of cross-site teams responsible for IP and discrete data center products, and general manager of data center group silicon development, according to the company.

In another development, Navid Shahriari, Intel senior vice president, will serve as the new co-GM leading DEG and focusing on data center products.
