AMD former boss has a crack at starting his own business

Written by Nick Farell

Formed with another AMD bloke
AMD's former Chief Executive Officer Hector Ruiz has opened a consulting company, aiming to win business by touting his experience in leading strategy and transactions.

We guess he will not be mentioning tablets and mobile computing which is the reason that AMD's board asked him to clear his desk. We guess he would also be an expert on Insider-trading as he recently was a witness for the prosecution of Raj Rajaratnam, co-founder of Galleon.

Rajaratnam said that Ruiz was a source of information on transactions by AMD that were then used as the basis of insider trades. Ruiz was never charged with any crime.

Ruiz's company is called Bull Ventures and it has been formed with another AMD bloke Bharath Rangarajan. None of them has commented about the move, but forming the company appears to be Ruiz’s return to business.

According to the company website, Bull Ventures aims to provide advice to companies who want to “grow from good to great.” The company says it helps corporate management teams develop and execute “industry changing strategies.”

"We guess he will not be mentioning tablets and mobile computing which is the reason that AMD's board asked him to clear his desk."

Very funny, apparently mr.Farrell is so confused or hasnt taken his morning coffee to poorly mistake Hector Ruiz to mr.Dirk Meyer, as for the tablets and mobile computing and lack of products and strategy, someone must inform mr.Farrell that AMD has products in the 5W range with working tablets like the Acer Iconia, has a working strategic relationship with ARM and with the next shrink at 28nm will own a healthy chunk of the mobile/tablet market with graphics technology vastly superior to Intels poor excuse.

Nick get your facts right Hector Ruiz was the CEO of AMD before Dirk Meyer which apparently got sacked of having no ultra-mobile strategy (which is just a rumour anyway). But Hector is still a joke, a cowboy. He's the one who said only real men have fabs

Didn't Hector Ruiz run AMD into the dirt. If so I wouldn't want him consulting my company.
