Gerhard Burtscher, a longtime computer executive, will take over as chief executive of German Linux seller SuSE on Saturday as part of a reorganization expected to bring profitability in 2002.

Burtscher will take over from Johannes Nussbickel, who was promoted from chief financial officer in June and will resume that position. Nussbickel had replaced longtime CEO Roland Dyroff, who took charge of North American marketing.

Burtscher has been working in the computer industry for more than 20 years and has held sales and marketing executive positions at Texas Instruments, Digital Equipment, MIPS Technologies, Silicon Graphics and Siemens-Nixdorf, SuSE said in a statement. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News
