Veritas Regroups

Veritas Software Corp. (Nasdaq: VRTS) has regrouped its engineering, product management, and marketing functions into three new units and made Mark Bregman its CTO (see Veritas Triple Header).

The move is in step with the company's stated purpose to move away from being a storage specialist and toward being a utility computing company. It also officially hands the technology keys to Bregman, who is the first CTO to take the spot since Fred van den Bosch left last March (see Veritas Loses CTO Again). At that time, Bregman, an ex-IBMer who joined Veritas in 2002, took over van den Bosch's duties without taking on the full-fledged CTO title. Instead, he served as EVP of product operations.

That's changed now. Bregman's taking the CTO mantle officially, and he's also become acting manager for one of the three new product groups -- Application and Service Management. That's just until a new manager can be found, a spokesperson says, to allow Bregman to focus entirely on his CTO duties.

The other two groups, Data Protection and Storage and Server Management, are overseen by EVPs Jeremy Burton and Kris Hagerman, respectively. Both report directly to Veritas CEO Gary Bloom, as does Bregman.
