Intel recently announced that Gregory Bryant was appointed vice president and general manager of Intel Asia-Pacific. Based in Hong Kong, Bryant is responsible for all sales, marketing and enabling of Intel products in the Asia-Pacific region, excluding Japan and China.
“Asia-Pacific today stands at the forefront of global technology growth and innovation. Emerging markets, like Indonesia and India, will account for most worldwide growth in the PC market over the next few years, with demand for cloud computing on the rise,” Bryant said.
“In addition, three of the world’s 10 largest OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) are based in Taiwan and South Korea, and two of those companies are among the world’s fastest-growing OEMs. Taiwan and South Korea have emerged as global centers of consumer electronics design and innovation, and they are leading the way forward with some of the world’s best Ultrabook, tablet and smartphone designs for 2012 and beyond,” he said.
Bryant joined Intel in 1992. Prior to his current role, Bryant served as vice president and director of the global Lenovo account, managing all aspects of Intel’s relationship with Lenovo, including sales, marketing and technical enablement. He also served as vice president and general manager of the Digital Office Platform Division, where he led the inception, launch and subsequent expansion of Intel vPro technology across desktop and mobile PCs.
Bryant developed his IT expertise in Intel’s Information Technology Group, where he progressed through engineering and operational roles, including serving as the director of office computing.
Bryant received his Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering from the University of Kansas in 1991 and his Master of Science degree in systems management from Golden Gate University in 1996. He completed the Harvard Advanced Management Program in 2009.
