Qualcomm Inc. said Nov. 19 that it named Cristiano Amon executive vice president for Qualcomm Technologies Inc. and president of its Qualcomm CDMA Technologies segment. He previously served as co-president of the segment, with Murthy Renduchintala.

The company announced that Renduchintala is leaving the company.

Qualcomm Technologies encompasses most parts of the company, including chip-making and engineering. It does not include the technology licensing business.

“This promotion is a recognition of Amon’s unique mix of business, engineering and operational skills,” Qualcomm said in a statement. “He has provided exceptional leadership in expanding QCT’s product roadmap — positioning Qualcomm as the industry leader in mobile technology; successfully building the chipset strategy and business in China, establishing Qualcomm’s position in this critical region; and developing deep and strategic customer relationships critical to the company’s long-term success.”
