Spansion forms CEO office, execs step aside

February 6, 2006 – Spansion Inc., the former memory chip unit of AMD and Fujitsu, has formed an “Office of the CEO” to improve execution and efficiency following the company’s transition to a public entity.

The new structure is led by president and CEO Bertrand Cambou, Shinji Suzuki, EVP/president of Spansion Japan, and COO James Doran, formerly EVP of worldwide operations. Two top executives appointed to oversee the transition out of former parent AMD have left the company: CFO Steve Geiser, who will pursue other opportunities, and Rich Previte, EVP/CAO, who returns to retired life.

Responsibilities for the remaining executive officers of the company remain unchanged: Tom Eby (EVP/chief marketing/sales officer); Amir Mashkoori (EVP of wireless division), and Sylvia Summers (EVP, embedded memory division).
