Qualcomm Appoints Anand Chandrasekher as Chief Marketing Officer
Qualcomm recently announced that Anand Chandrasekher has joined the Company as chief marketing officer (CMO). In the role of CMO, Chandrasekher will oversee global marketing and external communications. Chandrasekher will report to Steve Mollenkopf, president and chief operating officer of Qualcomm. If the name sound familiar it is because he was senior vice president, general manager for the Ultra Mobility Group (UMG) at Intel Corporation, with responsibility for the Intel Atom processor family. During his nearly 25-year tenure at Intel, Chandrasekher held a variety of leadership roles including head of Intel’s Worldwide Sales and Marketing Group, corporate vice president of the Mobile Platforms Group and co-general manager for the Intel486 Processor Division. He is best known for his pioneering efforts on the Intel Centrino platforms. It looks like Anand has moved from x86 to ARM!
“I am pleased to welcome Anand Chandrasekher as chief marketing officer,” Mollenkopf said. “His extensive experience in marketing and management makes Anand well-suited to help grow Qualcomm’s communications and marketing efforts across the world and to amplify our consumer offerings to new audiences.”
