New is filtering in that Laurie Schultz, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Mid-Market ERP Solutions, is leaving the company as of the end of the month. Laurie was in charge of the Mid-Market solutions which also included Sage ERP MAS90, MAS200, MAS500 and the newest ERP X3 lines as it was marketed in North America.
Laurie was recently spotlighted on the global ERP X3 conference call on May 26, 2011 where she was the only North America executive representing Sage in explaining the Sage ERP X3 marketing plans.
Laurie joined Sage in October 2004 and previously worked at Intuit as VP of their Small Business Division. In recent years she had risen through the ranks as Sage spending a little over 2 years as GM of their Small Business Division before moving to become Senior VP and General Manager.
The June 2011 edition of Computer Dealer News named Laurie Schultz one of the top 20 women in the IT Channel.
