Intel poaches technology guru Huggers from BBC

first_img ERIK Huggers, the BBC’s high-profile technology chief, has been poached by chipmaking giant Intel. The departure, first revealed on Cityam.com yesterday afternoon, is a massive blow for the corporation, which has significantly boosted its online presence under Huggers.Huggers, who became the BBC’s director of future media & technology in August 2008, is emigrating to Silicon Valley in California to become corporate vice president and general manager of Intel’s digital home group.Sources close to Intel said Huggers would earn “considerably more” than he does at the BBC. Last year, he took home a pay cheque of £407,000. He is following a similar path to his predecessor Ashley Highfield, the architect of the BBC iPlayer, who quit the state-funded broadcaster in 2008 to join Microsoft. In a memo to BBC staff, seen by City A.M., director general Mark Thompson said Huggers was not being directly replaced. Instead, chief technology officer John Linwood will be given extra duties while Ralph Rivera will become director of future media, with responsibility for the iPlayer. whatsapp KCS-content whatsapp Intel poaches technology guru Huggers from BBC More From Our Partners Supermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comPuffer fish snaps a selfie with lucky divernypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.com Tags: NULL Tuesday 18 January 2011 8:35 pm Show Comments ▼ Sharelast_img read more
