EdBrill.com - New Lotus General Manager announced

Ed Brill has blogged externally about Mike Rhodin's move onto General Manager, IBM Northeast Europe. Ed writes about Lotus' new General Manager:
"Bob Picciano, who has been the Vice President of Sales for Information Management (the DB2 brand). As far as I can remember, we have not had a Lotus GM come in from a sales role."
I guess it can ony make sense. Lotus has probably it's strong portfolio in a very long time. So the technology is in place, the portfolio is as strong as it's ever been with the new Notes 8 client, rock-solid Lotus Domino 8, Lotus Connections, Sametime family of products, and Quickr. I can only hope for stronger sales and more agressive (in the good way :-) marketing from Lotus. Not only in the US, but also in Brazil and other geos. We surely need better sales and marketing efforts here in Brazil.
