SUSE CTO exits Novell

Man overboard

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Juergen Geck, chief technology officer of SUSE Linux at Novell, will leave the firm at the end of the week, CRN reports. His departure is the latest of a string of departures by senior executives as SUSE since Novell acquired the open source software distributor two years ago.

Geck worked with SUSE for more than 10 years, during which time he was closely involved in developing a server-based version of the product and its YaST desktop configuration tool.

Geck said his break from Novell was amicable, adding that he wanted to work for a smaller firm. "After nearly 10 years at SUSE and now Novell, I think it was time for a change. Novell has been very good to me, and there would have been plenty of good opportunities within the company," he said.

In response, Novell carried out a mini-reorganisation focused on shaking up its open source business, marketing and regional operations. David Patrick was replaced as general manager of Novell's open platform solutions business by Lucent Technologies veteran Roger Levy after less than two years in the job.

Last November, SUSE Linux founder Hubert Mantel resigned from Novell during another phase of restructuring. Novell vice president Chris Stone, the chief architect of the SUSE Linux acquisition, left the vendor in November 2004 amid rumours of a disagreement with Novell CEO Jack Messman on corporate strategy. ®
