Tom Kilroy brings his clients the perspective of having led mature global lines of business at Intel, turning around lagging business units, launching new geographies and startup technologies, and guiding small companies from inception through IPO. In doing so, he developed a reputation for grooming talent and driving results in highly contested market environments. By the time he became Executive Vice President of Intel, Tom was known for his success expanding the company’s global footprint and growing startup divisions and products into highly competitive components of Intel’s $55B enterprise.
From 2005 to 2009, Tom ran Intel’s Digital Enterprise Group. This was Intel’s largest business including the server, business client, embedded, and visual computing platform operating groups. Tom first joined Intel in 1990 with the mission to startup and develop a branded networking business. His success in developing channels and scaling the business led to a spin-off of some of the assets and integration of other aspects into the core business. From there he went on to helm Intel’s global sales in the roles of EVP, Co-President of Intel Americas, and GM, overseeing the launch of highly successful product lines, acquisitions and divestments, and entrance into the emerging markets of SE Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe. Throughout the duration of his leadership, Intel maintained a top 10 brand value.
When asked what drew him to mentoring, Tom says, “I was privileged to work for a great company in various high impact roles. What I learned early on was that what you accomplish is not nearly as important as how you go about doing it. I couldn’t just take a single style of leadership and apply it in every situation – you cannot assume a US mentality when you’re engaging employees and partners across the globe. Helping others accelerate that learning curve is exciting for me.”
Prior to Intel, Tom spent 11 years driving sales and management for Burroughs Corporation, GE Information Services, and Wang Laboratories. During his time at Intel, Tom served on the board of Jive Software from the startup days through its IPO, as well as on the board of Acronis. He is currently a board member of the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute.
