News   News : Has Amiga Inc changed CEO?
   posted by DaveyD on 27-Apr-2003 11:58:47 (35820 reads)
Given the rumours, we asked fleecy the following...

"Has Amiga Inc changed CEO?"

Fleecy: As of this moment Bill McEwen is the CEO of Amiga and if a new CEO was to be brought in, it would be because of Amiga expanding as a company and Bill needing to concentrate on being Chairman and President - currently he is CEO as well and three top jobs in a company that is attracting the attention we are is at least one job too many.


Any CEO to be brought in would be as part of the team and would be totally in sync with the current strategic direction of the company.

If someone is posting information to the contrary then it can only be for ulterior motives.

bbrv wont get anything out of this, he has lost either way, even if its correct that hare will be the new ceo, or if he aint.

just remeber that, as trying to be so cool like this make me wanna vomit, its like some of the references in here and on ann.lu etc, its like if i started to post microsoft news, but to make sure i would call em old news so that it wont be treated as new news, and still obtain alot of people to read it as its nEws.

some people out here did always say that any news is gooD news, well now i think we are assured that they was wrong...wasnt we?

a last thing has to be said, stuff like this does happen if amiga.inc aint talking much, and this we have proof of from the last year even...but this time i think it struk us harder...
now it just remains to see the outcome of this.

Hey there

Garry (Hare) is a content veteran with decades of experience at all levels of business. With the amount of interest and work coming into Amiga, Bill made it clear to the board that he just had too much to do. One of our main investors introduced Garry to Bill and since that moment Garry has been providing informal advice and support as a favour to the investor.

He looked over our strategy documents, did some research and digging and was very excited about Amiga. He thinks we have a good team, an excellent strategy and could be massive as we move to the next level. He is particularly excited about the AmigaOne and AmigaOS4 and believes it could have a huge future.

He has been very helpful and, if you read his CV, it would be fantastic if he was to come to work for Amiga. That however is upto him. One thing I have learnt from my dealings with him however is that he will not be impressed with Mr Buck spreading this kind of information around.

However, that is neither here nor there. I was responding to the claim by Mr Buck that Amiga has a new CEO. Since that would be something that might appear in a press release on our site, I checked
www.amiga.com and couldn't find any mention of it.

So, as of ten minutes ago, Amiga only had one CEO and that is Bill McEwen. The AmigaOne and AmigaOS4.0 projects are steaming along, gathering pace everyday and Wayne Rooney scored two minutes into extra time with a wonder goal to secure victory for Everton against Villa.

The world is good.

Hey there

that would be wishful thinking ... or perhaps a desire to make others believe that it was more than wishful thinking so that they may be persuaded to do something else, for instance buy another solution.

How can we believe in Amiga Inc if they support dodgy ventures like Everton Football Club (and does this mean BB in now manager of Liverpool?)

Hey there

I have a lot of sympathy for this viewpoint. We have been weak - not intentionally but with the tight squeeze on resources that we have had over the past two years, it has been very difficult to push forwards as both Amiga Inc and the community would have wanted. We have invested all our efforts into trying to change this situation but what has been most impressive is that people like Eyetech, Hyperion, dealers and users have pitched in as well to try and help. It will take use years (if ever) before we can repay the kindness, passion and commitment of these people but we are all committed to one thing, getting the Amiga platform back out into the real world and moving forwards again, so we can finally leave the dark clouds behind.

cheers

Hey there

1. both Everton and Amiga have been described as lost causes.

2. Everton have spent the last ten years in the doldrums but now, a mere youngster is transforming that horror story. Amiga has spent the last x years in the doldrums and now a newcomer, AmigaOS4.0 is going to transform that horror story

3. Both Everton and Amiga start with vowels.

It's just uncanny

The problem is that noone in the Amiga public has heard from Bill M . You have been the one to post in forums, issue press statements, etc. I think we should here from BILL M about all this. Like some kind of press announcement. And although I appreciate your Q+A on this very website it is extremely vague, ambigous, and "dodgy" as our UK friends say.
Its silly the BB even has some ammo against Ainc. You guys make it easy - no offices, no contact info, no $50 coupon (lets not talk about the tshirts) The facts are that time after time Ainc has broken promises... BBRV has kept them.
At least to the people I know...

** I'll tell you how to stop the madness - GET SOME SCREENSHOTS OF OS4 RUNNING OUT TO THE PUBLIC *** That will Greatly help your cause. TALK IS CHEAP.
Genesi have MOS running FULL STEAM and with great Support. Now, with the upcoming Software BUndle its making it harder on Ainc!
** IS AINC GOING TO BE AT AMIWEST? I THINK YOU NEED TO BE SHOWING OS4 RUNNING THERE***
I mean you guys didnt even rent a small booth at the last Amiga show Kermit did in D.C. That is sad...

I've been waiting for OS4 for 2 years. I have a 4000T Cyberstorm waiting for it..
I'm typing this now on a nice shiny Pegasos G3! And its great!

You couldn't get Mr Rooney to be CEO of Amiga and solve all the world's problems by any chance ... could you?

There is only one thing that may restore at least a bit of your credibility, and that is releasing OS4.

But above quote about "steaming along" just isn't enough, i'm afraid.

You let the competition run over you. Just like that. As Realize just wrote, you're the most easy target there is.

Does anyone else find it even just slightly odd that Amiga.org has no "news" or "forum" discussion of this topic? Is that what having Genesi as a sponsor does?

@fleecy

I'd kind of guessed that it would have been a twisted version of events.

Can you deny this: "On the Snoqualmie front the operation is 100% gone -- everything has been or will be sold to creditors."

It's a shame when you have to put questions like this to a company when they're probably unfounded rumours.

@ Fleecy

"all I am saying is that contrary to the rumours, Bill McEwen is still the CEO of Amiga Inc and if there was a new CEO then don't you think that new CEO would have used his new powers to announce that fact?"

That is a very good point.

I am not sure what you can say.

If I understood that Amiga Inc. may have a new CEO in the future, then is it possible that they have hired some one new to maybe make that change down the road. So, with that said, did Amiga Inc hire Gary Hare? Not as the CEO. I am just wondering if was hired? If not what do you know about Gary Hare?

Thanks

Yes very odd ... I didn't have the time to post anything on amiga.org ... and what I wanted to read, could I read here, or on ann.lu

Thanks for your reply. It was great to have clear information about this. Please pay no mind to my other post asking who is Gary Hare.

I am thankful that you have been open about what has happened. I too am grateful for the above people and hope that we all may be able to show our thanks. It is great that they have been here for us :)

Hey there

"Can you deny this: "On the Snoqualmie front the operation is 100% gone -- everything has been or will be sold to creditors.""

I cannot comment on it since there is a possibility of legal action.

Sorry. Not what you want to hear but there again, where did this information come from? Can you provide a link since our lawyers would be most interested in the person who posted that little titbit.

cheers

Hey Jonas

"Man you totaly missed the corporate memo that you arent alowed to support Everton, only Arsenal is the aproved football club in the premiership :)"

If I missed it then perhaps it's true that I have been sacked. What was the signature of the CEO on the bottom of the memo?
