Pirmais no lielajiem Fortune 200 bosiem, kurš ierakstīja Tviterī, ka atkāpjās no amata.
Today’s my last day at Sun. I’ll miss it. Seems only fitting to end on a #haiku. Financial crisis/Stalled too many customers/CEO no more
Info pameta Vova uz NYT blogu, kur ir arī neliels rezumē par viņa veikumiem.
Mr. Schwartz has been fond of using the Internet as a soapbox. At Sun, he became the first chief executive of a major company to put up his own blog. Mr. Schwartz also pushed the Securities and Exchange Commission to put blogs on equal footing with press releases and filings when it comes to disclosing critical business matters to investors.
Mr. Schwartz replaced Sun co-founder Scott McNealy as chief executive in 2006, inheriting a company that had been suffering from declining sales ever since the dot-com bust.
One of the most dramatic moves made during Mr. Schwartz’s tenure as chief executive was Sun’s decision to release the vast majority of its top software products under open-source licenses. The company hoped that broad developer interest in its software products would help attract new customers and translate into sales of other products like computer servers and storage systems.
However, Sun struggled to post consistent results and its sales continued to decline. The recession only exacerbated matters, as Sun depended on sales to many of the financial companies that were pummeled the most during the downturn.
