François Piednoël announced on Twitter that he will be leaving Intel to pursue new, more exciting adventures. He worked at Intel for the last 20 years and as TechPowerUp reports, he was involved in the creation of Intel CPU architectures from Katmai (first Pentium III) to Kaby Lake:
He has been involved in the architecture development of CPUs, including Katmai, Conroe, Penryn, and Nehalem as well as SoCs in Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge, Haswell, Broadwell, Skylake, and Kaby Lake. Oh, and did I mention he was also strongly involved in the Intel Atom processor line and the massive shift in Intel's microarchitecture from Pentium 4 to Core? He has also supported development of CPUz, Intel Hyperthreading, and the Android x86 platform.
On his Twitter feed, Piednoël says he was the visible part of a massive team of people and points out everybody is replaceable. Be sure to check his Twitter the coming weeks as he will be revealing some of the lessons he learned from working at Intel, which should contain some great nuggets for young engineers.

It does seem he will be taking on a less public role as he tweets he will definitely not miss fanboys:
