Upheaval in Collax-Land
Collax is often quoted as being the German success story when it comes to a VC backed Open Source venture. I haven't been following the "goings-on" too closely recently - but because we talked to one of the VC investors back last year, I've remained sort of interested.
Seems there is now some ongoing upheaval at the moment, as the CEO Olaf Jacobi has suddenly "stepped down". A short time ago, Richard Seibt joined the board of Collax. Seibt is well-known in German Open Source circles due to his previous involvement in SUSE and Novell. Computerwoche is reporting today that Collax is now looking for a US manager to replace Jacobi and drive the international expansion of the company.
