Lisa Su, who has been within AMD since 2012 and is currently acting as the chief operating officer, has been named the new CEO of the company, immediately replacing Rory Read. Read, who joined AMD in 2011, which is just one year before Su starting working for the technology giant, has stepped down as chief executive officer and board member. AMD is currently negotiating a transition and separation agreement with Read, who will stay at the company for the remainder of the year to work as an adviser during the transition. According to Bruce Claflin, AMD's chairman, "Leadership succession planning has been a joint effort between Rory and the board and we felt that Lisa's expertise and proven leadership in the global semiconductor industry make this an ideal time for her to lead the company."
