Avaya Loses Key Channel Managers
VMware isn't the only company with personnel issues. This week Avaya confirmed that Worldwide Channel Chief John Spilotis had left to take a top sales job with firewall startup Palo Alto Networks.
Avaya also acknowledged that Tom Mitchell, senior vice president of global sales, is stepping down on Sept. 30, although he hasn't lined up a new job yet. Mitchell is handing over his responsibilities to Pierre-Paul Allard, formerly Avaya's senior vice president of global strategy and development.
