Intel senior vice-president and General Counsel, Bruce Sewell, who resigned from the company on the same day as 30-year veteran Pat Gelsinger, has joined Apple.
Sewell joins Apple in the same capacity, replacing Daniel Cooperman who is retiring at the end of the month, and will report directly to CEO Steve Jobs.
“We are thrilled to have Bruce join our executive team, and wish Dan a very happy retirement,” Jobs says. “With Bruce’s extensive experience in litigation, securities and intellectual property, we expect this to be a seamless transition.”
At Intel, Sewell has been responsible for leading all of Intel’s legal, corporate affairs and corporate social responsibility programs, managing attorneys and policy professionals located in over 30 countries around the world. He joined Intel in 1995 as a senior attorney assigned to counsel various business groups in areas such as antitrust compliance, licensing and intellectual property. In 2001, Sewell was promoted to vice president and deputy general counsel, managing Intel’s litigation portfolio, and handled corporate transactions including M&A activities.
