More than a month after former channel chief Pat Bernard left Novell, the open source company has named her successor.
Javier Colado, a two-year Novell employee, will fill the newly created role of general manager of partners. (Bernard’s title was vice president of global channel sales.) In his new role, Colado will manage Novell’s worldwide channel strategy and report directly to CEO Ron Hovsepian, the company said.
Colado has previous channel experience at McAfee and Lucent Technologies.
