SugarCRM Changes CEOs
SugarCRM announced today that John Roberts is being replaced as CEO by Larry Augustin, a veteran of the open source software industry. Augustin founded VA Software, now known as the Sourceforge, and served as its chairman from 1993 until 2002. Now Augustin is an investor and serves on the boards of a wide variety of companies, including SugarCRM. You can learn more about Larry's background in this Wikipedia article or from his blog.
This is clearly a good move for SugarCRM. Whether Augustin stays at the helm for a short time or a long time, he is a high caliber player and he will bring some much-needed experience and perspective to Sugar's leadership team.
