SUSE has announced that its chief financial officer (CFO), Andy Myers is to step down from the management board and as CFO at the end of this month.

Jonathan Atack, vice president of treasury and investor relations, will be joining the management board and serve as interim CFO from the beginning of July. Atak has worked alongside the CFO team, having previously reported to Myers for the last two years. Atack brings over three decades of experience working in senior financial roles for companies across a variety of sectors. Among other appointments, he was finance director for Bass International Brewers and CFO for ING Investment Management based in the Hague.

This news follows from SUSE’s latest hires in a strategic move to strengthen its executive team after the surprise exit of prior CEO Melissa Di Donato in March this year and current CEO Dirk-Peter van Leeuwen stepping up to the helm. This month has already seen Werner Knoblich start as chief revenue officer and Josep Garcia as regional GM for APAC.

Commenting on his three years at SUSE, Myers said, “It has been an incredibly exciting time at SUSE. The company ethos of being truly open has made a great impression on me, along with the extremely talented colleagues I have had the pleasure to work with. I will be following SUSE’s progress under DP’s leadership and rooting for its continued success in the months and years ahead.”

SUSE CEO Dirk-Peter van Leeuwen said, “All of us at SUSE thank Andy for his dedicated service and for the positive impact he has made during his time with us. He has navigated multiple acquisitions, played a key role in SUSE’s IPO and had the responsibility of leading our company as interim CEO prior to my joining. We will miss his astute judgment and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
