Ex-Intel chief Brian Krzanich joins CDK Global as its CEO

CDK Global on Wednesday named Brian Krzanich as its new chief executive officer and president, more than four months after he resigned from the top job at Intel following a probe that found he had a consensual relationship with an employee.

IT and digital marketing solutions provider CDK Global's current CEO Brian MacDonald will step down after just over a year at the helm.

He became executive vice president and chief operating officer in 2012, responsible for global manufacturing, supply chain, human resources, and information technology.

"CDK has a leadership position in a dynamic and rapidly evolving automotive technology market, and I am energized by the chance to help grow this unique company and take it to the next level," said Krzanich.

Brun added, "On behalf of the entire Board, I want to thank Brian MacDonald for the superb progress he has made in transforming CDK operations and cost structure, which has created a solid foundation for future growth and shareholder value-creation."

"Over the past few years, we have met our transformation plan goals and strengthened our commitment to our core products, while significantly improving our ability to meet customer needs.
