A visionary leader of ARM Holdings for more than a decade, Warren retired in July to focus on a significant portfolio of non-executive roles, including board membership of BT and Dyson.
Warren helped build ARM, the Cambridge based chip designer, into one of the world's most successful tech companies. Chips made by ARM power the vast majority of smartphones and tablets on the market. He also worked on the expansion of ARM into the computer server market.
Talking to the Cambridge News, Warren said: “When I got the letter telling me about the honour, it was great news. It is not just something for me, however. I led a very successful team at ARM, and this honour is as much for them as for me.”
Warren succeeds Anthony Preston (1974, Modern Languages) as the Chair of Wadham’s Development Council.
