Three eminent IT executives have re-appeared in unexpected places.
Joe Marengi, who resigned as president and CEO from Novell just two weeks ago, is joining PC manufacturer, Dell. It also emerged last week that Bob Frankenberg, Novell's former chief executive, will be joining Internet start-up Encanto Networks.
Meanwhile, John Sculley, a former CEO of Apple, has turned up at Catalyst, an investment firm specialising in the Israeli high tech industry.
Marengi, who had been at Novell since 1989, will join Dell in July as senior vice president of the company's relationship group, responsible for the Americas unit, serving enterprise, large corporate and medium-sized businesses. He will report to Kevin Rollins, senior vice president and general manager of Dell Americas.
Rollins commented: "We have aggressive plans to broaden our offerings to customers through the introduction of new products such as workstations, and new services such as expanded factory integration of software. The time is right to add someone with Joe's enterprise-level systems and networking experience to our management team."
Frankenberg, who was ousted from Novell last year after two years in charge, is understood to be joining California-based Encanto Networks as president and CEO. Following his departure from Novell, Frankenberg joined the board of Secure Computing at the end of last year.
Sculley, already CEO of California-based Internet software developer Live Picture, is joining Catalyst's board of European merchant bankers and industrialists. Sculley, who left Apple three years ago, also has an investment in NetObjects, a Web publishing tool maker.
