Dale Fuller, described by Wikipedia as "one of Silicon Valley's first-generation software executives, entrepreneurs and developers," has stepped down as president and CEO of MokaFive, the desktop virtualization provider.
He is being replaced by Dave Robbins, the former chairman and CEO of endpoint-management software house BigFix, which IBM bought in 2010.
Robbins is supposed to focus on growing the company's presence in the US and abroad. He reckons MokaFive's "client-side approach to device management represents the next wave in the management of distributed end points," and thinks the company has "a tremendous opportunity to help companies effectively deal with today's biggest enterprise challenge: how to maximize employee productivity, while keeping corporate data and applications secure on an increasing range of devices."
Robbins is supposed to have a successful track record building dynamic, high-performance teams as well as a wealth of knowledge in mobility and endpoint management.
Fuller will continue to serve on the company's board.
In his career Fuller has served as interim president and CEO of McAfee, president and CEO of Borland, and GM of the Powerbook Division of Apple Computer and of the NEC Portable Computer Division of Motorola. He is also a personal investor in approximately 60 start-ups.
