CA Brain Drain Continues
The VAR Guy tried to unplug from work over the weekend but then he saw the following headline in his local paper: CA Turnover Continues.
That’s an understatement. Twenty-one-year CA veteran Gary Quinn is leaving at the end of September, less than four months after he took over CA’s channel operations. Other recent departures include Senior VP of Global Marketing Joan Blackwood, CIO Kevin Kern, Senior VP and GM for Latin America Vincenzo Dragone, HR veteran Deb Coughlin and Senior VP of Development Operations Nigel Turner, Newsday notes.
Quite a list but it doesn’t end there. Departures from earlier this year include COO Jeff Clarke, CFO Robert Davis, Executive VP of Sales Greg Corgan and former CTO Mark Barrenechea. A CA spokesman actually told Newsday that all the departures aren’t cause for concern because the company has a “deep bench.”
The VAR Guy certainly hopes so because most of CA’s starters are leaving for other teams.
