The departure of Salameh leaves a big void at PSG. Let's not forget that Linda Fitzgerald
left HP Canada's PSG just a few weeks ago to become president of NCR Canada
. Salameh held the position for about 18 months and did a remarkable job during a tough transitional year for PSG. CDN
named Salameh the No. 3 top newsmakers for 2010
While Salameh's departure is a well-earned promotion, the perception in the channel is that HP Canada, right now, is lacking in leadership.
People in the channel told me that Salameh was the straw that stirred the drink at HP Canada. On a personal level, I'm sad to see him go because Salameh worked very hard and was passionate about Canada's leadership in technology. It was something that he wanted to drive as PSG boss.
