    AMD today announced the appointment of Thomas Seifert as senior vice president and chief financial officer. Seifert, 46, will report to Dirk Meyer, AMD president and chief executive officer, and will have responsibility for leading the company’s global financial organization.

    Been awhile since an announcement like this was made. Hopefully, things will pick up even more for AMD.

    He looks like a one of those local lawyers with the "Have you be taking (insert drug here), then you need to call me so we can make some money."

    I hope he comes with a marketing companion.
