3Com Names New Head of Sales

Fieger previously managed Lotus Development's worldwide field organization and later at IBM spearheaded a division responsible for pushing sales of Lotus products following the company's acquisition by IBM in 1995.

Most recently, Fieger served as president of Technology Coast Partners, a firm he co-founded to help U.S. companies penetrate the Latin American market, according to a 3Com statement.

The Marlborough, Mass.-based vendor has been operating without a top sales executive since September following the departure of Nick Ganio, executive vice president of worldwide sales and marketing.

3Com President and CEO Bruce Claflin had been handling worldwide sales responsibilities in the meantime. Fieger will report to Claflin.
