Epicor's Klaus Back As CEO, President
Irvine-based Epicor Software said Tuesday that Chairman George Klaus has been reappointed as CEO and President of the firm. According to the software firm, Klaus will replace current CEO Thomas F. Kelly, who will be leaving the company to "pursue other interests." Kelly will also resign from the firm's board of directors. According to Epicor's board, the change was made because Klaus is the "ideal person to lead the company at this time," citing his experience growing the firm following the technology recession in 2002. Klaus was CEO of Epicor from February 1996 to February 2008.
