Interview: Ron Hovsepian, Novell
This week's Q&A session is with Ron Hovsepian, the new CEO of Novell.
In recent weeks you have replaced the previous incumbent Jack Messman as CEO of Novell in a move that also saw the departure of the company’s chief financial officer (CFO). What was the motive behind this decision?
What the board wanted to communicate was, given the status of the company, its technology vision and the IT business environment, leadership changes were necessary. It felt that now was the right time to bring in new leadership to accelerate our focus on the business software market.
In this new role what will be on your agenda?
