     AMD: reorganization & sub-contracting

    It’s no secret that AMD is currently resolving "executive" type problems and is in the process of re-architecting (sic!). At any rate, this is what Dirk Meyer, the current president and CEO of the firm, has been saying for weeks now. AMD is currently going through (profound?) changes and departures, promotions and nominations at the top of the hierarchy have been multiple.

    Yesterday, it was Randy Allen, up until now in charge of Server & Workstation, that was named head of the Computing Solutions Group. However, there was especially the announcement by the Sunnyvale company of the creation of a Central Engineering organization that will be co-directed by Jeff VerHeul, vice-president of design engineering, and Chekib Akrout who arrived straight from Freescale after a successful stint at IBM where he worked on the Cell and PowerPC,.

    Allen Sockwell was promoted senior vice-president of human resources and Chief Talent Officer. Finally, Mario Rivas and Michel Cadieux, respectively executive vice-president of the Computing Solutions Group and former senior vice-president and Chief Talent Officer, have left the company.

    All of this probably isn’t unrelated to the rumors circulating which mention a restructuring plan that should soon be announced. You may recall, this will involve separating the company into 2 or 3 entities, one handling manufacturing and the other(s) design. Today Digitimes affirmed that AMD may sub-contract out some of its CPU production starting in the second half of the year to TSMC, which already produces ATI GPUs. This will enable AMD to sell off some of its equipment and lower operational costs.
