Bright Side of News reports former NVIDIA veteran Roy Taylor has left his position as Chief Sales Officer at Rightware to become head of AMD's worldwide channel sales. This position was previously held by John Byrne, one of Taylor's old-time friends. Byrne is currently Senior Vice President and Chief Sales Officer at AMD.
Knowing that he has to build the team of most competent people that need to tackle Intel, Nvidia, Qualcomm and others in the field of desktop, mobile and enterprise - only the best sales experts come to mind. Thus, we were not surprised when we received the news that Roy Taylor decided to leave the role of Chief Sales Officer at Rightware and take on the role of Head of AMD WW Channels Sales, a position previously held by John Byrne.
It is expected that Roy will lead the sales charge, using all of his skills and expertise created in those years when it was his Nvidia that was fighting ATI e.g. AMD. It is not known who will Rightware appoint to lead the sales team, but knowing the company management, we would be surprised if another Nvidia oldtimer, Derek Perez - steps up to the plate.
