Laura Anderson

Laura Anderson, who was VP/global communications at Intel, has moved to private equity firm Silver Lake Partners as managing director and head of communications.

During her nearly 20-year stint at Intel, Anderson handled crisis management, corporate positioning and financial communications related to mergers/acquisitions, restructurings and earnings.

She also worked for five years beginning in 2005 in the newly created role of executive communications manager for chairman Craig Barrett, CEO Paul Otellini and executive VP-sales/marketing Sean Maloney.

Egon Durban, managing partner at Silver Lake, expects Anderson to "make a significant contribution to Silver Lake and its partnerships with the world’s great technology companies, entrepreneurs and management teams.”

Anderson, who will be based in Menlo Park, began her career in Ketchum’s corporate practice in Chicago.

Earlier this month, Silver Lake announced that Barrett Karr, chief of staff to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, will join the $43B assets firm next month to lead government relations.
