The Intel exec we’ve come to know as “Mr. WiMAX” will be taking some time to recover — according to a company press release, Sean Maloney recently suffered a stroke but the prognosis for a full recovery is “excellent,” according to Intel:
Maloney’s prognosis for a full recovery is excellent and he is expected to resume all of his business responsibilities after a period of recuperation which is thought to be several months, the company said. His duties in the interim will be assumed by Dadi Perlmutter, also executive vice president and general manager (with Maloney) of the Intel Architecture Group. “I visited with Sean and his sense of humor and determination to return to work fill the room,” said Intel President and CEO Paul Otellini. “We wish him a speedy recovery and look forward to his return.”
As do all of us in the WiMAX world, where Sean is known far and wide for his thought leadership and general enthusiasm for more-powerful worlds of wireless communications. Get well soon, Sean.
