The general manager of Quarterdeck Europe, Martin Pickering, is to head up the European relaunch of Corel, it has emerged.
Martin Pickering, who before his sojourn at Quarterdeck ran mouse company Logitech, said on Saturday that he starts at Corel at the beginning of April.
Pickering's appointment means that Corel is likely to open its European headquarters in London rather than Holland. He will spearhead sales of the VNC but was unable to provide details of its channel strategy at press time.
He will help Corel launch its video network computer (VNC), a thin client device that uses a Motorola PowerPC processor, comes with two PC Card slots and has speaker, digital camera, microphone and Internet access. The unit will come with 16Mbytes of Dram and a modem or Ethernet interface.
Last month, Corel admitted that it had misjudged the European market when it closed down regional offices last year.
