That would be a news. Women are good multitaskers and equally sharp decision makers. I am for it :-)

That's the point that I'm trying to bring to the table!

I'm not saying it's blatant. But someone still has to make a decision when it comes to who gets hired among a talented pool of candidates.

I am simply questioning the idea that a male CEO is preferred over a female.

What they need is someone who is ready to move INTEL from normal desktops to mobile devices. I know they started, but they were a late-entry competitor. ARM has the lead in tablets and mobiles.

I'm pretty sure that mobiles have surpassed PCs by now, and while those chips cost a lot less, they are the future.

@pocharle,

"So then is it just an unspoken rule that makes recruiters shy away from really good female candidates?"

What a question. There should be a reason to that. But I do wonder sometimes why we are so concerned about women being CEOs or not. Do they need any help at all if they are really qualified for the position?

I get all that.

But I am wondering if there really is a basis for wanting male CEOs over female?

As Bolaji noted, I'm not advocating for any particular candidate, just noting that a couple of women are being included in the reports on who might follow Otellini. My own opinion is that Intel is too insular and might do better if they brought in someone from the outside. But many people seem to think that's unlikely.

In principle, no difference.  In practice, no difference.  CEO should be judged by how he/she treats employees, how the company is built for the future (i.e. long term), but not how the finance are being massaged to maximize personal gain.  By this standard, very few of the top-100 corporations' CEOs can get a pass.
