Novell channel chief departs

Novell channel chief Pat Bernard has left the company.

Novell said today that Bernard, its first vice president of global channel sales, left to pursue other interests. The company named Tim Wolfe, president and general manager of Novell Americas, as her acting replacement. Wolfe said in a statement that the company will move quickly to find a permanent successor.

Novell has seen strong growth this year, and the company expects that momentum to continue — with help from channel partners. Next year, more than half of Novell’s SUSE Linux Enterprise revenue will come through the channel, a company exec told me back in June. But that prediction could be off target if the channel’s leadership is in limbo for an extended period of time.

Bernard, a former Hyperion executive, joined Novell in November 2007. She took over for former channel chief Steve Erdman, who held the title of vice president of North American channels and aliances.

Most of the organisation consider the IT department as the brick wall with no ability to understand the business process and the dynamic business environment. I guess this has been more difficult lately as we have started hiring more university graduates as most of the experienced SAP consultants have left the industry.
