AMD hires APJ lead

David Bennett put in charge of operations and sales

Computing components manufacturer, AMD, has appointed David Bennett as Asia-Pacific and Japan (APJ) corporate vice-president to lead its operations and sales across the region.

He will report to senior vice-president and chief sales officer, John Byrne.

Bennett has been with AMD for more than six years, and has worked in a number of key global sales roles. Most recently he led AMD’s growth in client, server and embedded platforms as worldwide sales director for the HP account.

AMD credits Bennett for his involvement in winning the “single largest commercial client tender in the company’s history.”

Bennet also served as leader for AMD’s Canadian consumer retail business from 2010 to 2012, where he strengthened key customer relationships and helped AMD increase its market share position.

“David brings a proven track record of leveraging AMD’s strong product portfolio and relationships to drive growth and success for both AMD and customers,” Byrne said.

“A multicultural leader with strong business acumen and great expertise in building world-class sales teams throughout Asia and the Americas, David is ideally suited to lead our APJ team.”
