Canopy Faces Another Management Challenge
The technology holding company and, until recently, major SCO investor can't seem to catch a break. After taking the reins of the company in December, Val Noorda Kreidel dies without warning.SALT LAKE CITYThe turmoil surrounding the management of the Canopy Group continues with the report of the death last week of Val Noorda Kreidel, who recently seized the reins of the corporate parent of the SCO Group Inc. Kreidel, daughter of Canopy founder and former Novell CEO Ray Noorda, died last Thursday, just a week after the Noorda family and current Canopy management settled a dispute with three former executives of the company who were ousted in December. Canopy now serves primarily as a holding company for many small technology companies primarily based in Utah.
The companys current CEO is William Mustard.
