William T. "Billy" Edwards, previously vice president and general manager of AMD's Personal Connectivity Solutions Group, will be promoted into his new role, AMD said. AMD said Iain Morris, who has served in a similar role at Hewlett-Packard Corp., will replace Edwards as head of the PCSG.
The changes, the company said, "signal the company's need to expand its executive leadership in support of the company's growing portfolio of global customers and promising market leadership opportunities." Edwards will head the Office of Strategy and Technology, responsible for developing an "integrated, proactive, cross-business-unit approach to strategic marketing and technology planning".
