Cooper To Exit IBM Software

IBM confirmed last week that Cooper, vice president of worldwide channel marketing at IBM Software, is leaving.

Cooper will join Nokia as vice president of Mobility Solutions, part of the company's Enterprise Solutions Business Group, a Nokia spokesman confirmed. Cooper couldn't be reached for comment.

Longtime IBM watchers said the company's software channel management bench is deep and strong. Buell Duncan serves as general manager of developer and partner relations, and Mike Borman just rejoined the software group as vice president of worldwide sales.

Cooper is a longtime employee of IBM, having joined then-independent Lotus Development Corp. in 1992. After IBM bought Lotus in 1995, Cooper became part of the Knowledge Management Business Unit.
