Quantinuum names Raj Hazra as chief executive officer

Honeywell-owned quantum computing firm Quantinuum has appointed a new chief executive officer.

The company announced that Rajeeb (Raj) Hazra has been appointed to the role of CEO, effective immediately. He replaces Ilyas Khan, who will remain at the company.

“Raj is uniquely qualified for this role, having proven his technical abilities in advanced technologies and supercomputing in both small and large organizations,” said Khan. “His vision and leadership skills are exactly what we need to continue to accelerate our impact in the quantum computing sector, as well as society as a whole.”

Hazra joins from Micron Technology, where he was SVP and GM of the compute and networking business unit. He previously spent 25 years at Intel Corporation.

“I’m honored to step into the CEO role, where I’m excited to focus on helping Quantinuum grow and drive the innovations that will transform the way quantum computing positively impacts the world,” Hazra said. “By building on the solid foundation that Ilyas and the team have laid, we will continue to accelerate Quantinuum into the future.”

Despite stepping down, current Quantinuum CEO Ilyas Khan will remain at the company, becoming the firm’s first chief product officer and vice chairman, as well as remaining a member of the board of directors. Data Center Dynamics
