NVIDIA has lost their Quadro and Tesla manager to AMD. The story of Rob MacDonald begins with how he began with taking over NVIDIA's UK graphics sales operation in 2002 and shortly after was given control of graphic card sales into the Nordic region (Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway).

Rob was then promoted into Quadro sales and he has been expanding in that role ever since. Why is this news significant you ask? Professional products are the cash cow of the graphics industry...

Rob was 'the man' for NVIDIA as he controlled key accounts across UK, France, Spain, Portugal, South Africa, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, India and the Middle East countries. That's all you say? Well, the guy would know exactly which customers purchase what and where demand is and also, is not.

This is a huge win for AMD with their Fire Pro range.

Keep in mind that while AMD is nearly twice as big as NVIDIA overall - the sale of Fire Pro, etc is far smaller than Quadro, but could this all change with the employment of Rob?
