Broadcom has added some new talent to its ranks.

The global semiconductor and infrastructure software solution specialist announced that its board of directors have appointed Diane M. Bryant as an independent director and member of its compensation committee.

Bryant comes to Broadcom equipped with an IT career spanning more than three decades with executive leadership roles in the global semiconductor, enterprise IT solution development and deployment, and cloud computing services industries.

"Diane is a deeply experienced technologist and proven business leader with tremendous operational and strategic knowledge in cloud computing and enterprise IT which will be invaluable to Broadcom as we continue to expand our product offerings," says Broadcom’s board of directors chairman Henry Samueli.

Most recently Bryant held the role of chief operating officer at Google Cloud, where she was tasked with accelerating the scale and reach of the business. This included optimisation of the global supply chain, acceleration of customer adoption, and development of next generation information technology solutions.

Before this, Bryant maintained a 32-year career with Intel, with her final role being Group President of Intel’s Data Center Group, the global organisation that develops server, storage and network platforms for the digital services economy.

Prior to this role, Bryant was Intel’s Corporate Vice President and Chief Information Officer where she was charged with maintaining the corporate-wide information technology solutions and services that enable Intel's business.

In addition to Broadcom, Bryant also holds a place on the board of directors of United Technologies Corporation, and on its audit and finance committees, and on the U.C. Davis Chancellor's Board of Advisors and U.C. Davis College of Engineering Board of Advisors.

In terms of education, Bryant completed her bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from U.C. David in 1985, the Executive Program from Stanford Graduate School of Business in 2011, and currently holds four U.S. patents in mobile computing.
