AMD marketing executive to step down too?

Posted on Monday, Apr 14 2008 @ 21:52 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Last week we heard AMD's CTO is stepping down and today there's a rumour that Bob Brewer, AMD's Corporate VP of Strategic Marketing, is going to leave AMD as well.
We haven't seen any other sources report on this new departure yet, so we suggest taking it with a grain of salt. Still, Fudzilla points out that both Brewer's and Hester's departures could very well be tied to the problems AMD encountered in getting its quad-core Opteron and Phenom processors out the door. "If you think about it, these two top guys would be the ones that might be held responsible for the K10 delays and its fiasco," the rumor site elaborates.
To get their financials healthy again AMD intends to fire 10% of its workforce by the end of Q3 2008.
