Returning to Intel as CEO, I am very excited and humble. When I joined Intel at the age of 18, I just graduated from Lincoln Institute of Technology. During the 30 years of serving Intel, I am honored to be taught under Grove, Noyce and Mormon. Intel supported me to continue my studies at Santa Clara University and Stanford University. The company also gave me the opportunity to be at the forefront of chip innovation and work with the best and brightest in the industry.

My experience at Intel has shaped my entire career, and I am always grateful for this company. In such a critical period of promoting innovation, everything is accelerating digitization. I can return to the "big family" of Intel as the CEO. This will be the greatest honor in my career.

I have high respect for Intel’s rich history and powerful technologies that have created and will continue to shape the world’s digital infrastructure. We have an extraordinary talent team and impressive technical expertise, admired by the industry.

I look forward to working with all of you to continue to shape the future of technology. Intel has a deep history, and the transition from a CPU company to a multi-architecture XPU company is also very exciting; as the world's leading semiconductor manufacturer, we have unprecedented opportunities. I will share more of my thoughts on Intel’s vision and strategy in the near future. At the same time, I know that we must continue to accelerate the pace of innovation, consolidate our core business, and create value for shareholders, customers and employees.

I would like to thank Si Ruibo for his leadership role and significant contributions to Intel during the critical period of Intel’s transformation. I welcome him to continue to provide advice and guidance. For our customers and everyone, we will try our best to ensure a seamless connection.
