AMD's John Byrne is now EVP of America

Written by Fuad Abazovic

AMD of course

AMD America got some new leadership at least when it comes to its sales machine. As of today, John Byrne is promoted to an Executive Vice President, Americas Region and let me remind you that America is AMD’s largest market. America makes AMD some 45percent of its revenue.

John started selling graphics cards in the UK for AMD, as a managing director of Advance 3D an exclusive ATI partner for UK and Nordics. His company got acquired by AMD and he got promoted to Executive Vice President of WW Channel and SMB Sales and he served this position unit today. He worked his way up quite quicky.

As of today, he starts as an executive Vice preside of America region as his boss Emillio Ghilardi, a senior vice president and chief sales officer at AMD, obviously looks for more aggressive team to fight Intel and ARM treat.

John is a highest positioned Scottish man at AMD and we wish him a braveheart and all the best. He is good friends with another high ranked Scottish man, Mike Magee, we were told.
