SCO "Retools" Exec Responsibilities
Friday, February 17 2006 @ 01:53 PM EST

There is yet another press release from SCO, announcing Tim Negris as "executive vice president of sales and marketing. In conjunction with this new assignment, Negris will assume responsibility for overall marketing and sales, and will oversee public relations, events, customer support, professional services, as well as direct and channel sales."

Their PR could use some overseeing. And Darl? He's still there. He will "continue to lead the company's overall management team and drive the company's business strategies, while Negris oversees the company's operating units." So, I'd say Darl has lots more time for deep thoughts.

Here's the press release. By the way, in light of my last article, please note that SCO's own press release says "UNIX and UnixWare are registered trademarks of The Open Group." And as you read the description of the company, I think we see the Negris touch already in this sentence: "SCO's highly innovative and reliable solutions help millions of customers grow their businesses everyday, from SCO OpenServer on main street to UnixWare on Wall Street, and beyond. " I don't know that innovative is the first word I'd think of to describe SCO products but you have to admit that sentence is good marketing.

LINDON, Utah, Feb. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The SCO Group, Inc.

In conjunction with this new assignment, Negris will assume responsibility for overall marketing and sales, and will oversee public relations, events, customer support, professional services, as well as direct and channel sales.

"With the roll out of significant new products in 2006, execution will be critical and Tim Negris has the background, experience and talent to drive SCO's overall sales and marketing as we focus our energies and resources around growth opportunities in emerging markets such as Brazil, Russia, India and China," said Darl McBride, president and CEO, The SCO Group, Inc. "We believe this combines the right team of people focused on key areas that will help us succeed as a company."
