Posted on 23-May-2005 23:27 | Tags Filed under: News



PalmSource, Inc. has announced that David Nagel stepped down as president, chief executive officer and director of PalmSource, effective 22 May 2005, and Patrick McVeigh, currently senior vice president, worldwide licensing for PalmSource, has been named interim CEO. The board of directors has initiated a search for a permanent successor. Nagel will remain at PalmSource in an advisory role through mid-July 2005.

Nagel, 60, previously served as a member of the board of directors of Palm, Inc. and was named CEO and elected to the board of directors of PalmSource in December 2001. PalmSource was spun off from Palm, Inc. in October 2003, and subsequently completed a public offering in April 2004 and completed the acquisition of China MobileSoft Technologies Ltd., in January 2005.

McVeigh, 53, joined PalmSource in February 2005 as senior vice president of worldwide licensing. McVeigh brings more than 20 years experience in the high technology and consumer electronics industry to PalmSource. He is the former chief executive officer of Aliph Corporation, a developer of next- generation audio and speech technologies for mobile communications devices. Prior to Aliph, he was chairman and CEO of Omnisky Corporation until selling the business to Earthlink. McVeigh was also with the former Palm, Inc. where he was responsible for worldwide sales of all Palm products as well as international marketing and operations. Before joining Palm, McVeigh spent over 10 years with Apple Computer in a variety of sales and marketing positions.
