Intel has promoted Irish man Martin Curley, director of Intel Labs Europe and senior principal engineer, as vice-president of Intel Corporation.
Curley began working at Intel in 1992, holding a number of senior IT management and automation positions in Intel in the US and Europe.
He was global director of IT Innovation at Intel before beginning his current role at Intel in 2009, where he is responsible for the company’s network of more than 25 research labs. He also serves as senior principal engineer of the Intel Labs Europe network where he helps advance Intel’s research.
Curley is from Dublin and holds a bachelor’s degree in electronic engineering and a master’s degree in business studies, both from UCD. He also holds a PhD in information systems from the National University of Ireland, Maynooth.
He previously worked at General Electric in Ireland and Philips Electronics in the Netherlands. He also is the author and co-author of three books on technology management, innovation and entrepreneurship. He has published more than 20 papers and is a fellow of the Institution of Engineers of Ireland, the British Computer Society, the Irish Computer Society and the Irish Academy of Engineering.
Curley chairs the European Union Open Innovation Strategy and Policy group, which advises on strategic priorities for open and service innovation. He is also a co-director of the Innovation Value Institute (IVI) at NUI Maynooth, which aims to promote structural change in the way companies and governments gain value through IT.
Curley’s appointment to this role makes him the fourth Irish person to hold a vice-president position at Intel.
