Eden, senior VP of Intel International, was renowned for his off the cuff and sometimes pungent remarks. He was one of a few executives who were press friendly, rather than regarding us as the enemy.
He was in charge of the Israeli team who created both the Centrino brand the Intel Pentium M microprocessors.
He said in a press release that he was leaving Intel with a sense of satisfaction, after working with creative people who later became good friends.
Three years ago he went back to Israel from California and became president of Intel Israel, according to the Jewish Business News.
Eden was a member of the so-called “Old School” at Intel. He started working for the semiconductor company in 1982.
It’s unclear what his plans are for the future.
