Sept. 17, 2008
Kevin Roach, VP/GM of Rockwell Software, has accepted a position as executive vice president with Activant Solutions Inc., a private-equity funded software company that is in a different industry from Rockwell Automation. He will remain with Rockwell Automation until September 26, at which time Brian Van Horn, director of finance, will take on the VP/GM position on an interim basis until a long-term replacement is named.  “It is our intent to identify a successor quickly and we have already begun the process to move forward,” said Steve Eisenbrown, senior vice president, Rockwell Automation Architecture & Software. “We are committed to identifying a successor who will stay the course in terms of the current vision and strategy. The Information Solutions business will continue to be a key part of our growth strategy,” Eisenbrown emphasized.
