AMD has just announced its new Chief Executive Officer, with Dr. Lisa Su stepping in to replace interim CEO Rory Read. Read will stay with AMD, supporting the transition of Dr. Su as the new CEO in an advisory role, staying with the company for the rest of the year.
Before sitting down into the Iron Throne of AMD, Su was responsible for AMD's embedded and professional products, but stayed in this position for a short period of time before jumping into the position of CEO. Su was the GM of Global Business units. Su is AMD's first female CEO, with a slew of women taking serious roles in the IT industry of late.
