Earlier this week news hit the wire that AMD CFO Thomas Seifert is leaving the company, and now the Wall Street Journal found out that Chris Cloran, General manager of AMD's Client Division and Corporate VP, has also resigned. His position will be taken over on an interim-base by Lisa Su, who joined the company in December 2011 as Senior VP and General Manager of AMD's Global Business units.
The Journal adds that Cloran "oversaw chips used in products such as personal computers." Pat Moorhead, a former AMD executive turned industry analysts, also told the paper that Cloran was responsible for operations that made up "about 80% of AMD's revenue."

AMD has confirmed Cloran's departure, and it says Lisa Su will take on his duties as interim Client Division chief. Su hasn't been with the company for long. She joined the company last December as Senior VP and General Manager of AMD's Global Business units, replacing AMD and ATI veteran Rick Bergman, who resigned a few months prior.
WSJ's sources also revealed that Seifert enjoyed being at the helm of AMD when he was interim-CEO, and now plans to try for a CEO position at another company.
