Another One Down at AMD: COO Rivet Steps Down
The executive turnover at Advanced Micro Devices continues. Robert Rivet, who has served as the company’s COO since 2000, has left the company according to an 8-K filing. His last day was yesterday and his executive biography on AMD’s Web site is already returning 404s.
Rivet’s departure follows that of CEO Dirk Meyer, who resigned back in January, also rather abruptly. No word yet on AMD’s plans to replace either exec. CFO Thomas Seifert continues to serve as interim CEO of the company.
