For some, news of Geoff Squire’s appointment as president and chief executive of fast-growing OpenVision Inc’s newly-formed international operation based in Surrey, UK, confirms what had appeared to them to be a sideways shunt delivered by former employer, Oracle Corp, which last year moved him from head of international operations to a shadowy post developing new business opportunities. Squire resigned the post last November after a nine year-stint at Oracle which took him from being the firm’s first UK reseller to managing director of the company’s UK subsidiary, European president, and then to executive vice-president in charge of worldwide distribution before heading its international operations. He will sit on OpenVision’s board alongside chairman, chief executive and former colleague at Oracle, Michael Fields. OpenVision International will operate as a subsidiary of the Pleasanton, California systems management outfit. OpenVision has an OEM agreement with Hanover, New Hampshire-based Tally Systems Corp to incorporate Tally’s census recognition technology into its OpenV*Assets product. Tally, whose personal computer-based automatic recognition software is claimed to have sold a million copies to 4,000 customer sites worldwide, can itemise both hardware and software assets by brand name, version number, serial or model number and foreign language edition.
