Bonum Certa Men Certa

Some of Novell's Recent Departures

Richard Seibt seems to have found a new role, which is possibly just a casual or part-time occupation. Regardless, he is no longer involved with Novell, based on the following new bit of text.

Richard Seibt currently focuses on Open Source projects and serves as an Advisor to Open-Xchange, Inc. Previously, Richard served as CEO of SUSE Linux as well as President of Novell Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), where he was responsible for leading all aspects of Novell's operations in EMEA.


David Patrick seems to have quietly left, but it doesn't say when. Admittedly, this may have happened quite some time ago.

In conjunction with the funding, Xkoto named David Patrick as the company's new CEO. Patrick was previously vice president and general manager of Waltham-based Novell Inc., which he joined in 2003 as part of Novell's acquisition of Boston-based Ximian Inc., where Patrick was president and CEO.


It remains interesting to see the movement of high-profile figures at Novell. Quite a few of them left some time in the past year. The list below is very incomplete, but it gives a sample of stories we have covered.
