Chip giant AMD has made a series of executive changes and created a new division called the Central Engineering Organization, focussed on the firm’s product roadmap.
Formally responsible for the server and workstation business, Randy Allen is set to fill the gap left by Mario Rivas as head of the Computing Solutions Group. Rivas is apparently leaving AMD to ‘pursue new opportunities.’ Allen will now report directly to president and chief operating officer Dirk Meyer.
Meanwhile, former vice president of design technology at Freescale Semiconductor Chekib Akrout will co-head the new Central Engineering Organization with Jeff VerHeul, corporate vice president of design engineering.
The whole group will also report to Meyer and will handle the firm’s technology and product roadmaps.
