PowerBuilder product manager Sue Dunnell is no longer with SAP as of last week, as announced by Matt Balent, North Carolina PowerBuilder User Group president two days ago. Sue Dunnell was PowerBuilder's product manager ever since Sybase took over PB from its original creator PowerSoft. She has left to pursue other opportunities outside SAP.

Paul Horan adds that no decisions have yet been made on a permanent replacement. In the meantime, he and John Strano will be splitting many of her PB duties.

Paul Horan is a Senior Solution Advisor and Mobility Architect at SAP. He joined SAP as part of their acquisition of Sybase 10 years ago. In Sybase, he worked as a technical pre-sales architect supporting PowerBuilder, PowerDesigner, and SQL Anywhere. John Strano has over 10 years of experience in using PowerBuilder and he has written articles for multiple industry periodicals. He has been a Sybase Certified Instructor and has presented Sybase tools internationally since 1997.
