Rick Bergman rejoins AMD as Senior Leadership Team as EVP of Computing and Graphics

AMD has announced that Rick Bergman is rejoining AMD to become the company’s executive vice president of Computing and Graphics, taking the position of Dr Sandeep Chennakeshu, who plans to leave AMD at the end of this month. 

In his new role, Bergman will be responsible for AMD’s high-performance PC, gaming and semi-custom businesses, where his experience with S3 Graphics, ATI Technologies and AMD will no doubt be invaluable. 

This quarter marks a time of growth for AMD, where the company is due to gain both CPU and GPU market share thanks to the addition of the company’s latest 7nm products. Furthermore, AMD’s graphics division is also set to see success through Sony/Microsoft’s next-generation console platforms and Samsung’s plans to add AMD/Radeon graphics tech into their mobile SoCs. 
     
Right now, Bergman seems like the ideal candidate to lead Radeon into the future, as unlike Chennakeshu, Bergman has plenty of experience within the PC graphics market, having worked for AMD, ATI and S3 Graphics. Bergman’s management experience within these businesses, as well as his work within Texas Instruments, IBM and, more recently, Synaptics, place him an ideal candidate for leadership within today’s AMD.
