Intel working on secret plan

Intel's new leaders have a strategy for increasing sales of the company's chips, but they aren't ready to talk about it yet.

Brian Krzanich was named chief operating officer and Renee James was named president last week. Krzanich was Intel's chief operating officer and James was the company's software head. According to the Wall Street Journal, they were appointed to their new positions because they have devised a strategy to help move Intel chips into new mobile devices. Sales have fallen for PCs and laptops, Intel's traditional market.

"Brian and Renee have spent considerable time together developing a foundational strategy that builds on our employee, manufacturing, and architecture assets, which helped them earn their respective jobs," said Intel spokeswoman Chelsea Hossaini. "They understand that we are in the midst of a period of rapid technology and industry change, which has created added importance for Intel to extend the company's leadership and capitalize on new opportunities in areas like ultra-mobility.

"Beyond that, we aren't sharing any additional details at this point."

Miletich named parks assistant director

The Hillsboro Parks & Recreation Department has hired Dave Miletich as its new assistant director.

Miletich has more than 30 years experience in parks and recreation in various communities in Washington and Oregon. He served as assistant director of Vancouver-Clark Parks & Recreation for seven years, and most recently was deputy director of the North Clackamas Parks & Recreation District.

Miletich previously worked for Hillsboro Parks & Recreation as the development manager in 2010-11. During his tenure in Vancouver, he oversaw the development of the Firstenburg Community Center, an 80,000-square-foot multi-purpose facility that opened in 2006.

Miletich will succeed Wayne Gross, who was promoted to director of Hillsboro Parks & Recreation on Jan. 14.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to work in Hillsboro for a city that strongly supports the important programs and facilities offered by the Parks & Recreation Department,” said Miletich, who has a bachelor of science degree in park and recreation management from the University of Oregon.

“Dave’s deep knowledge of parks and recreation will serve our community well,” said Wayne Gross, director. “He has outstanding leadership skills, the ability to connect with people and communicate the importance of leisure services to our community.”

Miletich’s first day as assistant director will be May 20.

Nike charts campus expansion

Nike officials have announced the development team for the planned expansion of its World Headquarters campus near Beaverton.

The architecture firm is ZGF Architects, the project manager is Gerding Edlen and the primary construction contractor is Hoffman Construction.

Managers of the large sportswear company first revealed the company needed to expand late last year. They announced Nike would construct two office building on and near its existing headquarters last month.

Nike's principals have not yet revealed key details of their expansion plans, including when construction will start, the cost and size of the buildings and how many employees they will accomodate.

The buildings are likely to be the tallest in the area, however. At Nike's request, the Washington County Board of Commissioners recently raised the maximum height restrictions on and around the campus from 80 feet to 110 feet. The commission also increased the height limit for signage to 160 feet.
