AMD's COO Robert J. Rivet leaves the company

Written by Slobodan Simic

Another key departure
While AMD's shares are rising another one of the key people at AMD steped down from his position. After the recent "departure" of CEO Dirk Meyer, COO Robert J. Rivet followed suit.

Mr. Robert J. Rivet, a Motorola veteran since 1976, has been with AMD since 2000 as a senior vice president and chief financial officer. He was promoted to COO in 2002 but has now left the company according to an 8-K filling made by company on February 8th.

Biography details for Mr. Robert J. Rivet are already down at AMD's website, so we'll wait to see who will take his place. We can't help but wonder who will be next one as it looks like AMD is on a roll.

Hmmm, a bunch of brass getting turfed. Could it be a sign of things to come? Perhaps Bulldozer isn't all that it is cracked up to be.

Or the thing is that they've realised that they need someone better to take the company to the next level, because honestly, they deserve it.
At least that's what I hope, because AMD is capable of doing many great things in their domains.

All these departures are very strange....or not???. Buldozer will be out in a quarter, still it has not a Gpu ala SB. Liano is underpowered vs SB (no L3, old core) and good for the low end segment...... Server space is a disaster and Orochi is too little against Q3 six and eight cores Xeons SB based. Amd needs of the 22nm process in Q4 2011, not in 2013.......all good reasons to fire many Officers. The only Amd chance to follow Intel is to adopt a bulk process......Soi is died.
