Henri Richard is really leaving, with an official press release and everything

AMD today officially announced the resignation of Henri Richard, chief sales and marketing officer.  Word of Richard’s resignation circulated yesterday when AMD CEO Hector Ruiz sent out an internal memo to AMD employees announcing the resignation.

“After 20 years in the PC industry – and five of the most professionally rewarding years here at AMD – I have decided to make a move to a different business segment,” Richard said. “I am leaving AMD at a time when the company is in position to break the monopoly that plagues this industry. I am immensely proud of my contribution to AMD, and in particular, of the strong team I leave behind.”

Richard is leaving AMD in September 2007, as previously reported. He is leaving AMD on good terms. AMD has not announced a successor yet, thus the global sales and marketing teams will have to report to Ruiz until a replacement is appointed.

"So, I think the same thing of the music industry. They can't say that they're losing money, you know what I'm saying. They just probably don't have the same surplus that they had." -- Wu-Tang Clan founder RZA
