AMD is looking to strengthen its presence in its MEA region – which includes South Africa – with the appointment of a senior executive.

Gautam Srivastava officially takes over as Vice-President and Managing Director, Middle East, Africa and Pakistan next week. He will be based in Dubai.
Gaith Kadir, formerly GM, MEA and Pakistan, will still be involved in the region, responsible for commercial enterprise sales and demand. Kadir will report directly to Srivastava.
While more details around AMD's South African strategy aren't currently available, some significant announcements are expected to be made in the next few weeks.
