SCO promotes chief techie, adds new VP of marketing

X86 Unix distributor SCO Group has promoted its lead software engineer, Sandy Gupta, and given him the title of chief technology officer, while at the same time bringing in a new vice president of marketing to help the company peddle its new OpenServer 6 and future "Fusion" Unix products. Gupta will continue in his role as vice president of engineering at SCO, and will oversee the development teams that SCO has in New Jersey, California, Utah, and India (Delhi).

By CBR Staff Writer

Gupta lead the development of the UnixWare products at the New Jersey office prior to being named top software engineer, and he specifically lead the development for UnixWare 7.1.4 and OpenServer 6, the current Unixes from SCO. Now Gupta will have control of all technical development at SCO, not just for Unix products.

SCO also announced it has hired Tim Negris to be vice president of marketing. He has been a marketing executive at IBM Corp, Oracle Corp, and other IT firms in a career that spans 25 years. He apparently coined the term thin client while working at Oracle. He was a product manager at Sybase Inc as well.
