Lots of bad info on here, but what else would be expected from Randy?
There is a true statement on here - the only Exec that left 100% on their own was Ava Hahn. There are other listed here as "Scandal! Look at these people leaving on their own to join the competition!" that were publically let go (and yes are now at competitors) and others who were asked to leave and allowed to exit under polite cover.
There was NOT a 4% layoff at ShoreTel last week. There WAS a North American sales restructure that will have a net effect of 6 fewer positions. For a large sales organization, 6 fewer positions is not something you should all stand on your heads about. Sadly, there is nothing to see here from a scandal perspective. What there is a sales organization morphing as the industry morphs, and yes, still trying to recover from the over spending of many of the execs who were asked to depart. Connect the dots - Shoretel was profitable last quarter after letting several sales vps go. Coincidence? Or finally some good common sense put in to play? Their exits did nothing but help the company, which is decidely less exciting than the version of events put forward here.
At some point, it may be time to ask why this Randy person, president of a 8 person open source reseller with no college degree is in any position to be commenting on anyone's complex business events? Basic business finance has escaped him (evidenced by the inability to undertand the difference beween revenue growth and market share attainment) over your head, out of your league, not qualified to comment are phrases that readily come to mind. Aren't you busy out trying sell your next doctor's office a shiny new Digium? Go get 'em. Leave this real business to the professionals.
