"Intel is transforming, and I am excited to lead the company’s growth and innovation in APJ, one of the most diverse and fastest growing regions for Intel. Leveraging the strength of our partners and continuing our commitment to building an open ecosystem that serves our customers in a transparent and secure manner will be key to our long-term success in the region," said Chuang.

Intel announced India as a separate region within its SMG organisation in March to capitalise on the country’s rapid growth and business opportunities. Santhosh Viswanathan, vice president and managing director for India, will lead the newly formed region, leveraging his expertise to drive value and customer centricity.

"We see massive business opportunities and growing momentum in India. By creating a separate region, we are enabling our teams, including our strong engineering base in India, to work closely with our customers. It is a very exciting time for Intel in India, and I am thrilled to lead our business in the country," said Viswanathan.

Viswanathan holds an engineering degree in industrial engineering and management and a master's degree in business administration. 

Both Chuang and Viswanathan have extensive leadership experience within Intel and are known for their dedication to delivering outcomes for Intel customers. Their appointments reflect Intel's focus on aligning organisational structures with evolving market dynamics.
