Intel appoints Bangladeshi-American Omar Ishrak as board chairman Star Online Report American technology giant Intel has appointed Omar Ishrak, a Bangladeshi American director at the company, as their new Chairman of the Board. Omar replaces Andy Bryant, who is stepping down after seven years at the helm, amid a growing crisis in Intel's supply chain that has seen shortages in the company's line of processors. In a statement, the Santa Clara, California based company said the appointment was "effective immediately". As of yesterday, 64-year-old Omar served as the CEO of Medtronic, a medical technology company headquartered in the US, but with the appointment at Intel, he will step down from that role. He grew up in Bangladesh, and earned a Bachelor of Science Degree and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of London, King's College. Omar is also a member of the Board of Trustees of the Asia Society, a leading educational organisation dedicated to "promoting mutual understanding and strengthening partnerships among peoples, leaders and institutions of Asia and the United States in a global context", according to the Medtronic website. https://www.thedailystar.net/online/news/intel-appoints-bangladeshi-american-
