AMD Hires IBM Veteran To Lead Silicon Design

Advanced Micro Devices Inc. has appointed Jeff VerHeul, formerly leader of IBM's Engineering and Technology Services business, as its corporate vice president of silicon design, a move that emphasizes the close ties between the two companies.

LONDON — Advanced Micro Devices Inc. has appointed Jeff VerHeul, formerly leader of IBM’s Engineering and Technology Services business, as its corporate vice president of silicon design, a move that emphasizes the close ties between the two companies.

VerHeul spent 25 years with IBM and has been appointed to lead the development of all future AMD computing solutions, including silicon roadmaps and design efforts, AMD (Sunnyvale, Calif.) said.

AMD did not say which executive or executives had previously held this responsibility at the company or why they had been relieved of the responsibility.

"Jeff brings a wealth of experience in managing large, complex design activities at both the chip and systems level," said Dirk Meyer, president and chief operating officer of AMD’s recently formed Microprocessor Solutions Sector (MSS), in a statement.

“AMD has changed the competitive landscape by delivering superior products and technology solutions that are focused on the specific needs of our customers,” said VerHeul, in the same statement.
