It's the end of a computer-industry era, as Novell moves from its
long-time headquarters, which was located just a short commuter bus-ride from
the Mormon Tabernacle.
Novell Inc. is officially moving its headquarters to the Boston area from its
longtime center in Provo, Utah.
A Novell spokesman said the move "essentially validates" the company structure
that has existed for many months. He noted that Novell's chief executive, Jack
Messman, has been located in the Boston area since Novell acquired Cambridge
Technology along with Messman in 2001.
He said a large portion of Novell's corporate and operations involvement will
remain in Provo, which accounts for about one-third of the firm's head count.
About 10 percent of the company's workforce is situated in the Boston area, with
the actual headquarters building located in suburban Waltham. Novell's previous
chief executive and chairman, Eric Schmidt, worked out of offices in San Jose
when he ran the firm.
Novell cited the change in a Securities and Exchange filing.
