Code42 President And COO Leaves Company
Code42 continued its shake up of upper management with the announcement that former chief operating officer and president Brian Bell had left the company.
It’s the second big name to leave the fast-growing software company in Minneapolis. Founder and CEO Matthew Dornquast stepped down from his position last week.
Details of Bell’s departure are murky. A spokesperson for the company told tech.mn that he stepped down for “personal reasons” and that the separation was an “amicable parting of ways.” Even the date is a mystery, though his LinkedIn said he left in April.
Bell held the position at Code42 for nearly three years and was tasked with leading global expansion of sales and operations.
Speculation about the company has swirled since it canceled plans to move into a proposed expansion of the Moziac building in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis. The company danced around precise details of why Dornquast left the company, which was hidden away in a new release that focused on another topic.
Cofounder Mitch Coopet was named interim CEO as the company conducts a search for Dornquast’s replacement. The company will now need to search for fresh blood for two of its top positions.
