AMD can't hold an executive if they tried. They've been leaving one after another and even sometimes two or more at a time. Yesterday, AMD announced that CFO Thomas Seifert was resigning and now, it's coming out from the Wall Street Journal that AMD's Client Division chief, Chris Cloran, is leaving the company.

Chris Cloran was in charge of all of the client products, such as the CPUs that are used in consumer desktops, and reportedly was responsible for "about 80percent of AMD's revenue." AMD has said Lisa Su will take over as Interim Client Division chief. She hasn't been with the company very long, only joining last December.

 

In other news, Thomas Seifert's resignation has come with a bit of new information. It has been reported that he is looking for a CEO position elsewhere after he spent time as AMD's Interim CEO in the wake of Dirk Meyer getting canned in January, 2011. He served until August, 2011 when Rory Read took over.
