AMD Co-Founder, Ed Turney Dies

In late 1974 Turney parted company with Sanders and Advanced Micro Devices. He went on to a succession of small semiconductor manufacturing and distribution companies, very often run by people he had worked with at Fairchild. In his later years he was a consultant to firms trying to get started or funded. But he never again reached the heights that he had attained at Fairchild and AMD, Zelencik said. He spent the last 30 years of his life looking for the next big one seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

That being said, Zelencik added, Ed Turney was a great guy.

Ed was first and foremost a sales guy, said Marshall Cox, a semiconductor salesman and executive who knew Turney 45 years. He was classic Brooklyn; fast talking, high energy, a play-hard-work-hard kind of guy that was on top of every aspect of every piece of business. He knew how to get the business. He made his mark and well remember him for it.
