Intel Corp. has announced the appointment of Sean Maloney, currently executive vice president and general manager of the Intel Architecture group, as chairman of Intel China.

According to company spokesperson Chuck Mulloy, Intel told its workforce on Monday that Maloney's transfer reflects its recognition of China's expanding role and presence in the electronics industry. Maloney took an extended leave of absence after suffering from a stroke last year.

Mulloy said that Intel has never before had an executive vice president assigned to a foreign post. "But it makes sense for China," Mulloy said. "It's fully expected that next year China will become the largest market for PC consumption in the world."

Mulloy added that Maloney, who oversaw Intel's sales and marketing activities in Asia-Pacific from 1995 to 1998, has experience in the region. Maloney "knows a lot of the people and the players" involved in Intel's sales and manufacturing activities in China, Mulloy said.

As chairman of Intel China, Maloney will be responsible for overseeing and aligning all Intel activities in China, including the company's manufacturing and sales efforts there, Mulloy said.

The move also leaves David "Dadi" Perlmutter as the sole general manager of the Intel Architecture group. Maloney and Perlmutter had both served as general manager of the group since a management restructuring in late 2009.

Maloney has in the past repeatedly been mentioned as a possible candidate to one day succeed Intel CEO Paul Otellini.

Maloney suffered a stroke at his home in February 2010 and was on medical leave until this past January.
