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.
