Sage North America confirmed yet another high-level departure from its ranks as executive vice president and general manager of midmarket ERP Laurie Schultz will resign from her post at the end of July.
The news comes shortly after the company’s annual partner and customer conference Sage Summit, where the company announced major rebranding plans for all of its products.
Sage chief executive Pascal Houillon offered some details concerning Schultz’s resignation in an organizational announcement to partners Tuesday night.
“We thank Laurie for her many contributions to the success of partners and customers. During her tenure at Sage, she established the Sage ERP product strategy and road map, streamlined the entire MME business unit, and helped get us back to revenue growth and a strong market presence in North America,” Houillon said in the letter. “A search is in progress for a replacement and I am committed to a smooth and speedy transition. I will serve in the role until a permanent replacement is named. The balance of the Sage North America organization remains unchanged.”
It was not clear what Schultz’s next move was, though some sources claimed she has accepted the role of CEO at a Canadian software company that would not compete with Sage.
As SVP and GM for Sage’s mid-market ERP solutions, Schultz set the strategic direction for the Sage ERP MAS product line for the U.S. market and for Sage ERP Accpac. She also had close ties with many of Sage’s ERP reseller channel.
Schultz also recently made the Computer Dealer News list of Women in the IT Channel 2011, in which CDN showcased 20 exceptional women who play major roles in Canada's IT channel.
Prior to her current position, Schultz was general manager of Simply Accounting solutions. She joined Sage in late 2004, moving from Intuit Canada, where she held various positions, including vice president of the Small Business division and director of consumer finance for Canada and the U.K.
