AMD's chief marketing officer (CMO) Nigel Dessau, is leaving the company. Rory Read, CEO of AMD, has been making some "aggressive" changes to the company in a mission to turn AMD into a lean, well-oiled, profit-making business that it should be.

Read has recently laid off a bunch of AMD staff, with a number of them reportedly from the marketing department. These people are most likely the ones who snuck out with the 800 million missing transistors from AMD's Bulldozer platform.

 

Dessau had joined AMD in 2008, and previously served as CMO for StorageTek, Sun Microsystems and IBM. He will leave in January, but will stay with AMD until their new Radeon HD 7000-series of GPUs have been unveiled.
