AMD today announced the resignation of Sandeep Chennakeshu, executive vice president of Computing and Graphics.
Sandeep Chennakeshu joined AMD in January 2019 with responsibility for the company’s high-performance PC, gaming, and semi-custom business. Before joining AMD, Sandeep Chennakeshu spent 30 years serving in multiple senior engineering and executive roles at Ericsson, Freescale, Sony and Blackberry.
AMD has also appointed Rick Bergman in place of Sandeep Chennakeshu. Rick Bergman most recently served as president and CEO of Synaptics for the past eight years. Prior to that he spent ten years in senior executive roles at AMD and ATI.
AMD in January said it will unify all sales operations under Darren Grasby, senior vice president and chief sales officer. Darren Grasby will lead the global sales and go-to-market activities across all product lines, channels and regions.
Forrest Norrod, senior vice president and general manager, Datacenter and Embedded Solutions Group, will have responsibility for all AMD datacenter products across both CPUs and GPUs, AMD said earlier.
