Intel's marketing chief leaving

Deborah Conrad, Intel's (INTC +0.1%) marketing chief since '08 and a 27-year company vet, is leaving in April.

An Intel spokesman: "The timing is good for her personally and for Intel, as we explore new markets and new opportunities."

News of Conrad's departure comes just a couple weeks after Dadi Perlmutter, the former head of Intel's Architecture Group, officially left the chip giant.

Interbrand estimates Intel's brand was worth $37.3B in 2013, down 5% Y/Y but still #9 worldwide. The company has a long history of launching joint marketing campaigns with PC OEMs using its processors, and has lately extended those efforts to cover tablets.

    She was treated for breast cancer in 2012, possibly more of a personal decision verse anything to be concerned about in regards to Intel.

    is this something to do with Intel performance these days? Intel management may have forced marketing chief to leave as it did with Dadi.

    I've got an article that SA hasn't published. Will re-write and see if they'll publish with this news release. To say that Intel's marketing abilities have been less than admirable would be an understatement.
