AMD has added industry veteran and 44-year employee of OBM, Nicholas Donofrio, to its board of directors. Initially working as a logic and memory chip designer, Donofrio moved to lead IBM’s technology strategy as executive vice president and IBM fellow prior to retiring from the company in 2008.
His contributions during his 44-year tenure resulted in the company’s receipt of the highest number of patents of any company for 13 consecutive years. Mr. Donofrio sits on the board for The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation and Liberty Mutual, and is on the board of trustees for the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as well as co-chairing the New York Hall of Science Board of Trustees. He has a bachelor’s degree from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a master’s degree from Syracuse University.
“Nick is a highly-respected technology and business leader who has driven some of the industry’s most successful and important technology initiatives during the past four decades,” said Bruce Claflin, chairman, AMD Board of Directors. “He will be a great addition to our board.”
