Marvell CFO Jean Hu to join AMD as executive vice president and CFO

AMD will soon make adjustments to senior executives. The former Marvell chief financial officer (CFO) will join AMD as executive vice president and chief financial officer, succeeding Devinder Kumar, who is about to retire.

AMD stated in a statement that Jean Hu will enter the job on January 23, and Devinder Kumar will stay until April to complete the relevant handover work. Due to the current downturn in the PC industry, the slowdown in demand has led to a market recession, AMD itself is also in a turbulent period, and its stock price fell by 55% last year. Jean Hu will face more challenges after joining the company.

Jean Hu joined Marvell in August 2016 as Chief Financial Officer, responsible for the company’s financial planning and strategy, accounting and reporting, treasury and taxation, and investor relations. Jean Hu has more than 20 years of financial leadership experience in the semiconductor industry, having previously served as CFO at companies such as QLogic and Conexant. To fill the vacancy left by Jean Hu, Marvell will promote chief accounting officer Willem Meintjes to the chief financial officer.

Devinder Kumar is a veteran of AMD. He joined AMD in 1984 and has played for more than 38 years. He is an absolute backbone. Devinder Kumar, as Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer, and Treasurer, is responsible for the company’s global finance organization as well as global corporate services, facilities, and indirect procurement. Devinder Kumar has worked in Asia for ten years, successively serving as the Finance Director of AMD Penang, and the Group Finance Director of AMD Manufacturing Services Group in Singapore, Thailand, China, and Malaysia.
