Peglar on the hoof: Micron flash and XPoint VP legs it

Exits loss-making company for pastures new

Reg comments Got Tips?

Eighteen months after joining Micron as VP of Advanced Storage Solutions, Rob Peglar has thrown in the towel and resigned to take up a post elsewhere.

He worked in Micron's storage business unit, headed up by Darren Thomas: the unit responsible for helping Micron flash HW components and software play a part in storage systems from the flash solid state drive and up the stack. This includes NAND drives and the forthcoming XPoint technology.

The company has just announced a second loss-making quarter, due to poor NAND sales and margin, and announced a coming restructuring initiative which will include job losses.
