Previous to this new post Jon spent three years at Vevo music video platform as an EVP of Market and communications and between 2013 and 2015 he worked as a Senior Director of Comms at Qualcomm. He helped to shape the great communications team of Qualcomm that many know and appreciate today, and gave them an edge it needed.
Intel was his home between 2011 and 2013 before he joined Qualcomm as the Director of the corporate communication team. His previous jobs included VP of Comms at GlobalFoundries after AMD's spin-off and six years at AMD and ATI. He made an impact in communications and marketing organization of every chip company he's worked at.
Interestingly enough, yours truly met Jon at his first ATI job when he worked on a software graphics driver PR in his early technology days. The fact that we still kept in touch after so many years and changes is astonishing.
Jon is one of the highest acclaimed communication executives I have ever worked with and has a special bold risk taking approach compared to almost everyone else on the technology communications and marketing front. The secret of his success is that his approach works.
If we deconstruct his title, Carvill is likely to work with a marketing team highlighting Intel’s technology leadership in manufacturing, product, strategy and overall organization but with deep technology executive ties.
His new job will most likely get him close to his old pals like Raja Koduri and his team that he knew from ATI and AMD and Murthy, Dr. Venkata M. Renduchintala from Qualcomm. Raja M. Koduri senior vice president of the Core and Visual Computing Group, general manager of edge computing solutions and chief architect at Intel Corporation while Murthyji is group president of the Technology, Systems Architecture & Client Group, and chief engineering officer at Intel Corporation.
With Jon Carvill, Intel has definitely gained a skilled marketing and communication executive who gets things done and he will certainly be a great addition to an already impressive team. It seems like Intel woke up from a long hibernation and started hiring a dream team of technology talents.
Our buddy, now ex-Editor in Chief of PC Perspective and analyst, Ryan Shrout, is one of the most recent additions as a chief performance strategist in the Platform Engineering Group.
Some long-term ex-AMD/ATI people who are lining up for the future desktop / notebook endeavors including Chris Hook, Darren McPhee, and Antal Tungler will definitely help Intel’s graphics and AI aspirations.
Intel is happy to win Carvill back again.
