Pascal Van Dooren Boogies Out Of Sage

The last time most of us spotted Pascal Van Dooren, Sage VP of Sales, he was moving and grooving his way through the opening keynote video at the July 2011 Sage Summit conference.

Turns out Sage’s sales VP kept on moving after returning to the office. A channel wide communication sent today announced that Pascal’s last dance happens October 4, 2011.

Van Dooren joined Sage in 2007 coming from Epicor where he was  Epicor’s VP sales.

No destination was given in the announcement though CEO Pascal Houillon did state that Pascal Van Dooren would “leave Sage to pursue another opportunity within our Sage Partner ecosystem”.

UPDATE 9-8-2011: Seth Fineberg at Accounting Today reports that Pascal Van Dooren is headed to Avalara where he will join ex-Sage Director, Channel Programs & Readiness Rob Johnson in an as yet unknown capacity.
