Intel's board of directors has crafted a new position for Andy Bryant in order to prep him as Intel's next chairman.

Along with be a director at Columbia Sportswear Company and Kryptiq, Inc., Andy Bryant already serves on the board of McKesson, the healthcare distributor. He also heads up McKesson's finance committee and serves on the audit committee.
