With AMD's executive vice president and chief sales and marketing officer Henri Richard resigning, AMD executives seem to be leaving a sinking ship?
I've mentioned the fact that AMD's executive vice president and chief sales and marketing officer Henri Richard took to the stage to outline AMD's stance on unethical business and marketing practices in a previous column. Since delivering that speech AMD however make a 180-degree turn in that regard and did exactly what they previously accused Intel of doing, so much for corporate hypocrisy. During AMD's recent Technology Analyst Day, which outlined the company's technology and product roadmap, AMD continued on their abysmal marketing track record by missing opportunity after opportunity, to impress the media and the shareholders by showing real world performance of upcoming products. Hence, to me the fact that Henri Richard will step down, effective on September 8th, doesn't come as a surprise really..
