Sun has reeled back another former executive. Stephen Shankland got the scoop that Rich Green, who was an executive at the Sun-laden startup Cassatt, is returning to Sun to run the software division, recently vacated by John Loiacono, who went to Adobe Systems in March. In his prior stint as Sun, which lasted 15 years, Green was vice president/general manager of the Solaris products organizations and vice president/general manager of Sun’s combined Java organization. Former CFO, Mike Lehman, recently rejoined the company, and now shares an office with newly crowned CEO Jonathan Schwartz, and ace hardware designer and a Sun co-founder Andy Bechtolsheim rejoined the company in 2004 after nearly a ten-year hiatus in the startup (Granite Systems) and angel investment (Google) worlds.
