Warren East has held the CEO job at ARM since 2001, overseeing 12 years of rapid growth that has seen ARM usage skyrocket in usage. ARM is broadly used in consumer electronics and is now ramping up to be a major player in the server world as well. ARM Holdings today announced that the East era is coming to an end, though, as he’ll be retiring from ARM effective July 1st.
East is set to be succeeded by the current president of ARM, Simon Segars. Segars is no stranger to ARM and has been with the group since 1991.
