AMD recruits a new prez away from Motorola


— 12:19 AM on January 26, 2000

AMD set up a conference call on short notice today to announce the appointment of their new President, Hector Ruiz, formerly of Motorola. There's a nice backgrounder article at EETimes about this development, which looks like it was a shock to folks at Motorola. AMD offered Ruiz the opportunity to succeed W.J. Sanders, the company's chairman and CEO, as Head Honcho Numero Uno once Sanders decides to step down. Looks like Ruiz jumped at it.
