Steve Mollenkopf will fill in for Paul Jacobs, the current CEO and the son of Irwin Jacobs, the founder of Qualcomm. Paul will however, remain as an executive chairman of the Qualcomm.

Steve Mollenkopf has been a part of Qualcomm since 1994 and is an integral part of the management team for almost two decades. In the recent past, he has also led the wireless chipset business unit of Qualcomm, which is known as QCT.
