Dirk Meyer Leaves Job As AMD CEO By Mutual Consent
Although AMD standalone GPU sales have overcome Nvidia sales, the company is not doing too well in the CPU area where Intel is the leader and it doesn’t seem like there will be any changes very soon. In order to try to change that the AMD Board of Directors and the company’s CEO have decided to part ways by mutual consent, and now Thomas Seifert has been appointed as the interim Chief Executive Officer.
AMD didn’t give any official reasons why Dirk Meyer left the company, but like said, things didn’t go too well at the chipset maker and when things go wrong, you must find a scapegoat, usually being the leader. The Chairman of the AMD Board, Bruce Claflin, is now looking for a new CEO as the company’s CFO, Thomas Seifert, said that he doesn’t want the job and his position as CEO is only temporary.
We don’t know whether Mr. Seifert would have done a better job than Mr. Meyer, and we don’t know who’s going to be appointed as AMD CEO. Read more details about Meyer’s departure at this link here.
