Red Hat Channel Chief Roger Egan Leaves for Docker

eganRed Hat (RHT) Channel Chief Roger Egan is moving on to Docker, an open source engine.

According to Egan’s LinkedIn profile, his new role at Docker is senior vice president of Channel and Sales.

Docker is an open source engine that automates the deployment of any application as a lightweight, portable, self-sufficient container that will run virtually anywhere.

A Red Hat spokesperson said Red Hat is “now actively searching for a new head of North America channel sales.”

Until Red Hat names a replacement, Bob Wilson, Red Hat senior director of North America channel sales, and Jerry Lumpkin, Red Hat senior director of North America channel sales, will share Egan’s responsibilities, the spokesperson said.

Egan’s exit comes just ahead of the 2014 Red Hat Partner Summit, slated for Jan. 13-15 in Scottsdale, Ariz. He was hired by Mark Enzweiler, vice president of Global Channels and Alliances for Red Hat, back in 2007.

“Enzweiler has said publicly that when Egan told him he was leaving, he had mixed emotions,” the spokesperson said. “While he was sad to see Roger leave, he recognized this was a great opportunity for him.”

The spokesperson added that Egan officially left Red Hat on Friday, Jan. 3.
