INTERNATIONAL – 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 Chief Executive Brian MacDonald will step down after just over a year at the helm.

The former Intel chief resigned in June 2018 over an inappropriate relationship with an employee. 

The married 58-year-old stepped down on Thursday after an internal investigation by the tech company revealed what it described as a 'violation' of its 'non-fraternization policy'. 

Krzanich, who has been the chief of Intel since 2013 and is married with two daughters, quit immediately. 

'Intel was recently informed that Krzanich had a past consensual relationship with an Intel employee.   

According to The New York Times, Krzanich earned a $21 million as Intel's chief.
