What Intel Is Looking for in Its Search for a CEO

Intel Corp. has been trying to fill the most prominent role in the $400-billion chip industry for more than six months. The company’s board still hasn’t found what it’s looking for.

Intel directors have ruled out some candidates for the vacant chief executive officer post, passed up obvious ones, been rejected by some and decided to go back and re-interview others, extending the search, according to people familiar with the process.
