Eight possible CEO candidates for AMD

Posted on Sunday, January 23 2011 @ 21:20:22 CET by

EE Times analyzed who is most likely to become the new head of AMD and came up with a list of eight possible candidates, you can read it over here. It includes Pat Gelsinger, Anand Chandrasekher, Rick Bergman, and even Jerry Sanders.
Believe it or not, one analyst believes that Jerry Sanders, AMD's CEO from its founding in 1969 until 2002, should be a candidate for the CEO position once again.


Sanders is of course a legend in the semiconductor business. But would he still have the desire for the difficult job of running a chip company at age 74? After all, Sanders walked away in 2002, handing the reins of AMD to Hector Ruiz. Even if Sanders were up to the job, what message would it might send the wrong message for AMD to reach back for past glory when it needs to look ahead to be prepared to navigate an uncertain future. (Plus, Sanders might deem it emasculating to return to a now fabless AMD.)
