Leslie Pirritano moves from Nvidia to AMD

 

After 13 years working for Nvidia Leslie Pirritano has moved over to AMD, giving the Marketing department over at AMD a huge potential boost moving forward. 

From 2006 to 2009 Leslie acted as Nvidia's Head of Developer Relations, with her job title changing to "Your Best Friend" from 2009 to 2016. Over her time at Nvidia she has worked with many of the world's top video game developers and created co-marketing and programs which have benefited Nvidia in a Huge way, creating many Geforce Game bundles and establishing Nvidia's worldwide digital redemption process for game codes.     

If you remember buying a Nvidia GPU over the past few years and receiving a free game with your purchase it is likely that Leslie Pirritano is responsible for that. Alongside that she also plays a huge role when it comes to creating relationships with game developers, helping them to get the help that they require getting their games to run well on PC hardware.

Now that Leslie has moved to AMD her existing relationships with developers and her expert negotiating skills will allow AMD to forge stronger relationships with developers and hopefully allow them to strengthen their position in the GPU market.         

Yesterday AMD had released a new AMDiy video, where Leslie upgraded from three water cooled EVGA GPUs (Nvidia) to three AMD R9 Fury X GPUs.

I only have one thing to say: gg, AMD.
In all seriousness though, this really has to hurt for Nvidia. Still, good for AMD.Quote

Awesome news! I wonder if her involvement extends to relationships with professional/productivity software. I'd love to see AMD wedge in and get Nvidia and their proprietary crap out of professional software products. I understand that hardware developers often create/invest in software, but it seems wrong when a group purchases existing software and then turns it proprietary without adding notable features.Quote

Sounds like her job to me. To interact with everyone and help them out with hardware or support.

Although did anyone else notice she was still using an EVGA board? Still has Nvidia branded products lolQuote
