Build a business case: developing custom apps

Dirk Hohndel has quit his post at SuSE, ending a seven year association with the company he helped found. Hohndel was CTO and since February acting President of the US operation. Linus Torvalds' best man leaves to pursue "personal and professional" interests, according to a statement put out by SuSE's Oakland office, which covers just about everything, doesn't it?

Holger Dyroff, currently SuSE Inc's sales director is named as the leading US executive, although not 'President' as such.

Hohndel was a technology strategy at Deutsche Bank, along with his predecessor as SuSE's US President Volker Weigand, a nucleus for the foundation of the German distro.

Last month SuSE moved CEO Roland Dyroff onto the board with former CFO Johannes Nussbickel taking the chief executive mantle. ®
