In-Q-Tel, the CIA’s venture capital firm, is hiring a former Intel vice-president to lead the company. Chris Darby, who was responsible for Intel’s of middleware products, will serve as president and CEO starting on 18 September. Darby replaces interim CEO Scott Yancey.
Yancey himself took over after Amit Yoran resigned in April, after just four months on the job. And if you aren’t thoroughly confused yet, Yoran became CEO after In-Q-Tel founder Gilman Louie quit to form his own venture capital firm.
In-Q-Tel currently has investments in data mining, visual recognition and cryptography companies.
