Compaq today announced more corporate reshuffling as yet another senior executive jumped ship.
The company said enterprise top dog, John Rose, will leave company tomorrow, although no reasons were given for his departure.
Rose is the fourth senior executive to leave Compaq since chief executive Eckhard Pfeiffer was ousted earlier this year. Rose had been tipped by some analysts as a likely successor to Pfeiffer.
Enrico Pesatori will take over Rose's position as senior vice president and group general manager of Compaq's enterprise computing group, effective tomorrow.
Pesatori will also retain his role as acting senior vice president of corporate marketing.
Also today, the company announced that Michael Capellas has been promoted to acting chief operating officer of Compaq effective immediately. Capellas, previously senior vice president and chief information officer at the company, will report directly to the office of the chief executive.
Fred Jones, vice president of information services will take over Capellas' role as chief information officer.
Ben Rosen, chairman and acting chief executive officer, commented: "Creating this COO position is an important step in realigning Compaq's organisation to speed decision making and improve execution. With Michael's appointment, we expect to improve our focus on meeting out customers requirements."
