Semiconductor major Qualcomm today said Cristiano Amon will be the president of QCT.

His promotion comes in the wake of the resignation of Murthy Renduchintala, co-president of QCT for the past three years.

Amon has provided leadership in expanding QCT’s product roadmap – positioning Qualcomm as the leader in mobile technology; building the chipset strategy and business in China, and establishing Qualcomm’s position in this critical region.

“Cristiano has been managing QCT’s product roadmap since 2008, a period of unprecedented growth and innovation for Qualcomm and the industry,” said Steve Mollenkopf, CEO of Qualcomm.

For the past three years, Amon has been responsible for Qualcomm’s semiconductor business as co-president of QCT and a member of Qualcomm’s executive committee.
