Lisa Su, in sum, is the current CEO and president of Advanced Micro Devices (AMD). Her leadership has led the company to great heights, and without her ability, AMD might not be where it is today.

 

According to Fortune.com, Lisa Su TRIPLED the stock of AMD in five months. Five months is all she needed. While so many of us would say, I couldn’t do this in a year, Su managed in less than half of a year, and more.

 

She was born in Tainan, Taiwan, and immigrated to the United States at the age of 2. Her parents taught her at an early age about mathematics and science, and pushed her to learn more and more, until she found that, Hey, I can learn more than what I can simply learn from others. She read, and read, and learned, when so many of us would think that our education would lead to nothing. When we thought that our ideas of the “mitochondria being the powerhouse of the cell” was total nonsense, she took it to heart, and later on, this small idea became the seed of the silicon chip company that AMD is today — a powerhouse.

 

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, she just “had a great curiosity about how things worked.” When we simple people would simply look at things and say, “What is this?” Su would probably say, “What is this all about?”

 

It was in the year 2000 that Lisa Su got her spotlight.She became the technical assistant to IBM’s CEO, then Lou Gerstner. After showing her mettle, she became the director of new and emerging projects, creating new ideas, and finally, she was named the Top Inovators Under 35 in 2001 by the MIT Technology Review publication.

 

Times passed, and soon, she became the senior vice president of Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) in January 2012. She, according to the AMD website, oversaw the “end-to-end business execution of AMD.” Soon afterwards, AMD made deals to put their chips inside XBox and PlayStation consoles, giving them an edge over competing processor lines.

 

In 2017, she was named one of the World’s Greatest Leaders by Fortune.
