AMD today announced the departure of Emilio Ghilardi as senior vice president and chief sales officer, effective immediately. Rory Read, AMD president and chief executive officer, will serve as interim chief sales officer while the company actively seeks a replacement.

"I'd like to thank Emilio for his contributions to the business and wish him well in his future endeavors," said Read. "Developing relationships with our customers that are grounded in a foundation of trust through consistently delivering on our commitments is critical, and we are making progress toward that goal. AMD enters 2012 with significant momentum, and we are building upon that momentum by embracing the shifts occurring in the industry and marrying market needs with innovative technologies to become a consistent growth engine."

Yes, please! Rename it ATI, the part of the company that actually still matters.

We can't have it both ways... pissed about Bulldozer, but railing against change for those who the new guy (Rory) see’s as complacent or indifferent to how/what advanced a culture of lethargism.

I don't think anyone's actually criticizing him, just commenting on the amount of people who seem to be going. It's probably not unwarranted, but it doesn't make it any less notable.

No, just bring back ATI and make it a division of AMD. I still think AMD made a mistake in removing such a popular name.
