NetSuite Snags Former Microsoft Dynamics Channel Exec
NetSuite continues to expand its channel management expertise, making a key channel management hire this week that's a loss for rival Microsoft.
CRN learned that NetSuite has hired Doug Kennedy, a longtime manager of channel operations for Microsoft's Dynamics ERP and CRM applications business. Kennedy is charged with managing NetSuite's relationships with its key systems integrator partners.
NetSuite's cloud applications compete head-to-head with the cloud versions of Microsoft Dynamics software. Luring Kennedy away is a big win for NetSuite and a loss of channel expertise for Microsoft.
