3Com will be organised around customer business units rather than products once its takeover of US Robotics is approved, but 3Com president Bob Finocchio is to leave.
Finocchio will depart on 31 May for personal reasons, the company said. The company's two existing business units, 3Com Systems and 3Com Interface Systems, will be replaced by Enterprise Systems, Carrier Systems and Client Access arms to concentrate on customer markets, not products.
Analysts said it is inevitable that some executives will be forced out by the merger but 3Com chief executive, Eric Benhamou, said: "With our ample pool of executive talent to draw on we expect all the executive positions to be filled internally upon completion of the transaction."
The three worldwide divisions will look after 3Com?s four target markets - enterprise, carrier, small business and consumer - and the company promised to release more details about its future next month.
