Novell Presents New Executive Leadership Team, Returns to Utah


Novell, a business unit of The Attachmate Group, today announced a new executive leadership team with a mission to rededicate and refocus on the end-user computing solutions used by many of Novell’s long-standing and loyal customers and partners.

Under the leadership of Bob Flynn, president and general manager of Novell, the Novell management team will continue innovating next-generation products while also nurturing the mature and widely adopted Novell solutions.

Central to the unit’s go-forward strategy to help customers maximize their investments is extending support for the NetWare product as customers upgrade to Open Enterprise Server and continuing investments in Novell GroupWise and Novell ZENworks endpoint management solutions.

The new Novell business unit will have a clear focus on the widely adopted core Novell solutions in the collaboration and endpoint management markets. This renewed focus will allow Novell to dedicate resources to meet existing and new customer requirements, where the company’s heritage and expertise is strongest.

Headquartered in Provo, Utah, the Novell leadership team comprises:

Bob Flynn – President and General Manager
Dave Wilkes – Vice President, Engineering
Eric Varness – Vice President, Product Management and Marketing
Juan Carlos Cerrutti – Vice President, North America Sales
Dirk W. Schmidt – Vice President, EMEA Sales
