SuperNova Inc, the Dutch component assembly and development company formerly known as Four Seasons Software BV, has announced that Jossi Gil, founder and chief executive, is stepping down from his post to assume the role of chief technology officer. Gil – who admits the company is somewhat lacking in market awareness – says that technology is his strength and passion. The move will allow him to concentrate on his product development and enhancement, while allowing someone with more market savvy to run the company. The new president and CEO will be senior VP of worldwide operations, Graham Williams, who promises a major announcement that will lead the company in a new direction. The company has restated its goal of becoming the world leader in developing and deploying components regardless of platform or language. To help boost US sales, SuperNova has also appointed Michael Tatelman as US president, and executive VP of worldwide marketing. Tatelman has previously done marketing work for Seagate Technology Inc and Comdisco Inc. SuperNova says it is well positioned to derive new products (hence the impending announcements) from its technology base and reckons, with ongoing additions to its sales and support team, the company will double in size by the second quarter of 1998.
