Strangely, some observers saw Geoff Squire’s move from head of international operations to a shadowy post working on new business opportunities at Oracle Corp as a promotion rather than an uncomfortable shunt sideways, but he clearly saw things otherwise, because he has quit the company – and Oracle says that as a result, plans for a new business development operation have been abandoned; Squires is one of two Brits, the other being Peter van Cuylenberg, that some have in the frame for the top job at Novell Inc, for which PC Week also suggests the IBM Corp’s Ellen Hancock and AT&T Co’s Robert Kavner – Novell chief Ray Noorda, who has promised to name a successor before he turns 70 in June, had hoped to bring Kavner aboard as part of the Unix System Laboratories Inc acquisition but the two were unable to reach agreement, the paper hears; the more fanciful suggest that Novell might acquire Lotus Development Corp, Oracle Corp or Sun Microsystems Inc to land the right chief.
