AMD任命LISA SU博士取代RORY READ擔任首席執行長

如同我們先前的報導所述,John Byrne和Lisa Su兩人取代Rory Read擔任首席執行長的競爭,已經沸沸揚揚了好一陣子,今天公佈的消息讓這場競爭就此劃下句點。公司宣佈將由Lisa Su博士取代現任首席執行長Rory Read。他在當時比較類似擔任公司的代理首席執行長,負責挽救在Thomas Seifert領導下,幾乎垮台的公司。 AMD投資人關係的聲明指出Read會在過渡時期擔任顧問,繼續為AMD(那斯達克交易代號:AMD)效力,並且會一直留任至2014年底。我們曾在報導中提到Su先前負責管理公司的嵌入式與專業產品,但她在就職極短時間之後,就接任首席執行長了。事實上,Su在接掌全球事業群之前,便擔任這個單位的總經理,從這點就能看出她有望角逐首席執行長一職。 這是AMD持續進行結構調整的過程,也是本月執行大規模重整的第一步,我們在上週就指出這點。AMD即將進行許多改變,且公司董事會撤換Read絕對是明智之舉,因為事實擺在眼前 – Su的確精通公司的產品和市場。Read的工作是讓公司繼續營運,且在必要時疏通關係,瞭解他在公司職責的人一定都能看透這點。等到像是Su這樣的人才獲得適當的職位培訓,了解該如何就此經營業務之後,他在位的日子也就不長了。事實上,Su先前在AMD的多數工作幾乎可說是迷你首席執行長的職責,這或許能解釋她擔任首席執行長的消息,為何沒讓多少人感到訝異。 Su同時也是AMD的第一位女性首席執行長,這再度顯示了資訊科技業的進展,像是Oracle、IBM、HP和許多全球最大型的企業現在都由女性領導。雖說Su身為女性無論如何不該影響公司或她的表現,但這對整體科技業的女性來說還是一件好事,因為這樣就不會引發女性在業界只能勝任哪些工作的錯誤觀念了。 請觀賞以下影片,了解Su對就任新職以及公司走向的看法。
