NOVELL APPOINTS NEW CHIEF

By CBR Staff Writer

Novell Inc, after a long search, has appointed Eric Schmidt as chairman and chief executive. However, Sun Microsystems Inc is going to have mixed feelings about it: on the plus side, Schmidt is mad keen on Java; on the minus side, he was Sun’s chief technology officer. John Young, who had served as Novell’s interim chairman during the seven-month search, will become vice- chairman. The future of president and chief operating officer Joseph Marengi remains uncertain until next week.
