Lenovo’s talks to merge Fujitsu’s PC operations with its own have been postponed, Fujitsu says.

However, a spokesperson for Lenovo tells WRAL TechWire that there’s no timetable for a deal.

“We have nothing new to report,” the spokesperson said.

“Lenovo and Fujitsu are exploring a strategic cooperation, but we have no timeframe to communicate at this time.”

Meanwhile, a former Intel exec tweets that she’s joining Lenovo’s data center group, which is based in the Triangle. And Lenovo confirmed the hire.

In Japan, media site NHK reported Thursday that Fujitsu and Lenovo were delaying moves to merge PC operations.

Fujitsu says that the delay won’t impact on the integration plans, however.

A merger has been expected for several months.

In other news, Lenovo’s data center group is landing a former top executive at Intel.

So says Kim Stevenson, who was named Intel’s chief operating officer last summer but resigned in February.

“Very excited to join Lenovo as SVP & GM for Data Center Infrastructure. I’d love to hear your Viewpoints on Lenovo’s DC products,” she tweeted Wednesday.

Stevenson said she would move to the Triangle to take the job.

Lenovo confirmed that she will start her new job on May 1.

She’ll be working for Kirk Skaugen, who was named president of the Lenovo operation in November. Skaugen also is a former Intel executive.

Stevenson served as Intel’s chief information officer from 2012-2016 before being promoted. She left HP to work for Intel in 2009.
