CFOs coming and going in US and UK
Andrew Brown has been appointed CFO of palmOne, the US handheld computing and communications provider. He was previously CFO at storage-solutions provider Legato Systems. At palmOne he will be responsible for finance and accounting, investor relations, corporate development and information technology. Meanwhile Karen Kupferberg has been named CFO of US software company Axeda Systems. She joins the company from EMC Corporation where she was corporate controller. Axeda Systems CEO Robert Russell says the company will particularly benefit from Kupferberg's experience in managing technology companies to strong profitability and solid growth.
And finally, the FD chair at UK healthcare IT specialist iSoft has been made vacant as John Whelan, who took on the role last February, leaves to pursue opportunities in the private equity sector. Shares in the company fell 10% when Whelan's departure was announced.
