Chipmaker Intel just announced the departure plans of two longtime executives, one heading up its business devoted to personal computers, another heading up its Internet of Things efforts.

Kirk Skaugen, Intel’s senior VP in its Client Computing Group (Intel refers to PCs as clients), is leaving the company for a new job elsewhere, according to an internal memo released today. He previously ran the chipmaker’s Data center and Connected Systems Group during a period that its sales grew from $6 billion to $10 billion a year. His last day will be April 8. Navin Shenoy was named to take over.

Doug Davis, the general manager of the Internet of Things unit, is also leaving after 32 years with the chip giant. Before the IoT group he ran part of Intel’s manufacturing operations at its sprawling factory complex in Arizona as well as its efforts aimed at netbooks and tablets. A successor in the IoT group was not named; Davis’s last day will be at the end of the year.

Intel declined to comment on a Bloomberg report last week that Aicha Evans, the current head of Intel’s still struggling effort to sell chips into smart phones, is also leaving the company. Evans was promoted to the job after a shake-up at Intel’s mobility group last July.
