Rob Chandhok, a senior executive at wireless giant Qualcomm, is leaving the company, Re/code has learned.

Chandhok, who was a senior VP at Qualcomm Technologies, helped spearhead Qualcomm’s work around AllSeen, one of several competing efforts to create an Internet-of-things standard. He also worked on Qualcomm’s recent wearable efforts, including the company’s Toq smartwatch.
