updated 06:25 pm EDT, Fri November 4, 2011

Leaves after 11 years driving marketing strategy

AMD's plans to cut 10 percent of its workforce is prompting some executive exits as well. Among the first to go will be Patrick Moorhead, AMD's corporate VP for strategy, who confirmed he was leaving late Thursday. During his tenure, he led the company's marketing efforts for its Athlon and Opteron PC and server chips.

He has been with the company for over 11 years. He was the last remaining VP hired by AMD's founder and former CEO, Jerry Sanders. Prior to AMD, Moorehead had worked at Compaq, DEC, and AltaVista.

According to people familiar with his plans, Moorehead will be launching a consumer-focused technology analyst and consulting firm early next year. He hinted that there would be more to see in and around the CES expo in January, which he plans to attend. [via AllThingsD]
