AMD Mourns Loss of One of its Earliest Key Employees

AMD today sadly announces the passing of one of the company's early employees, Ben Anixter. Anixter joined AMD in 1971 and helped to shape the culture of the company while serving in numerous capacities during his long tenure. Among many contributions, he was a leader in industry affairs and played a key role working with the Semiconductor Industry Association. Those efforts helped open the Japan semiconductor market and the elimination of tariffs and other trade barriers on electronic products, ultimately helping to drive the incredible expansion of global markets for information technology products.
