Intel has appointed Paula Tolliver as corporate vice president and chief information officer (CIO), replacing Kim Stevenson who will take on a new role at the company. Tolliver joins Intel from Dow Chemical where she served as corporate vice president of business services and CIO. As Intel CIO, Tolliver will report to Intel chief financial officer Stacy Smith and joins the company’s management committee.
“Paula brings both a depth and breadth of business, technology and strategic acumen that will be a tremendous asset to Intel,” Smith said. “We look forward to her leadership of Intel’s global IT organization and her contribution to corporate-level strategic initiatives.”
After nearly five successful years as Intel’s CIO, Stevenson will transition to a new executive role at Intel. Stevenson will serve as chief operating officer for the Client and Internet of Things Businesses and Systems Architecture (CISA) Group reporting to Dr. Venkata “Murthy” Renduchintala. She will remain on Intel’s management committee.
“Kim strategically aligned IT to Intel’s business priorities and established its reputation for excellence and innovation,” Smith said. “A true business partner and a consummate strategist, her experience running large organizations and working across groups will be a huge asset in her new role.”
Tolliver holds a bachelor’s degree in business information systems and computer science from Ohio University and also attended the Babson College Executive Education Program.
