Qualcomm Inc. announced on Tuesday that it named Mark McLaughlin as its new chairman of the board, effective immediately. McLaughlin, who earlier served as the chairman and CEO of Palo Alto Networks, will replace Jeff Henderson as the chairman at the semiconductor and telecommunications equipment maker.

"Jeff assumed leadership of the Board during a period of unparalleled challenges, becoming our first independent Chairman and guiding the Board through the Company's efforts to resolve significant business issues. The Board is deeply appreciative of all that Jeff has done during this period of transition," McLaughlin stated. Henderson will remain on the Qualcomm board and will continue to chair its audit committee.

The company's CEO Steve Mollenkopf praised McLaughlin's "deep experience in the technology industry" and said he is looking forward to working with him.
