Two More Executives Depart AMD
Chip-maker Advanced Micro Devices, a month after seeing CEO Dirk Meyer forced out, announced Feb. 9 that two more executives were leaving the company.
Robert Rivet, AMD's chief operations and administrative officer, and Marty Seyer, senior vice president of corporate strategy and the company face for many of its product efforts, are both leaving the company, according to a statement put out by AMD.
"Both are leaving to pursue new opportunities and are expected to remain through a brief interim period to help ensure seamless transitions," AMD spokesperson Michael Silverman said in an e-mail.
For right now, John Docherty, senior vice president of manufacturing operations, is assuming Rivet's responsibilities -- he is in charge of all aspects of AMD's manufacturing process -- and will report to Thomas Siefert, the company's chief financial officer and acting CEO until a replacement for Meyer is found. Among Docherty's duties is overseeing the company's transition to a 32-nanometer manufacturing process and leading AMD's Global Operations Group, which touches on everything from testing and packing to supply chain, logistics, and sales and operations.
Harry Wolin, senior vice president, general counsel and secretary for AMD, will oversee the company's corporate strategy unit.
