The IT service management provider today issued a statement that
said in his place the company has appointed the long-time local head of
Enterasys Networks, Gary Mitchell. The executive has led Enterasys
locally since early 2003, after a 15-year stint at CA. The
company did not disclose what Davies' next move would be.
In an early version of BMC's statement, Asia-Pacific sales

suitability for the role. For his own part, Mitchell said he was
eager to get started in the role.
