(Reuters) – Chipmaker Qualcomm Inc said on Friday interim Chief Financial Officer Dave Wise will retire, effective immediately, and named Akash Palkhiwala as a temporary replacement.
Wise, a 23-year company veteran, had replaced CFO George Davis in April.
Palkhiwala, who joined Qualcomm in 2001, is currently senior vice-president of finance.
