On Thursday, Intel announced the appointment of a series of vice presidents, including seven Israelis.

Intel has been operating in Israel since 1974 and employs approximately 13,000 people at Intel’s five Israeli research-and-development centers, exporting $4 billion dollars worth of products in 2018.

Of all the patents submitted by Intel from 2015 to 2018, 12 percent originated in Israel, according to intellectual property lawyer Ilan Cohn, who was cited in Calcalist.
