Brightstar Corp. has hired former Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD:US) executive Thomas Seifert as chief financial officer replacing Dennis Strand, who will lead a new business unit.
Seifert will start Dec. 1, Miami-based Brightstar said today in a statement. AMD, the second-largest maker of processors for personal computers, said in September that Seifert was leaving his post as CFO to pursue other opportunities.
Strand has been named president of Brightstar Financial Services, the company said.
