Covisint resignation

GLOBAL ebusiness exchange Covisint has announced Harold Kutner as its new chairman and chief executive officer following the resignation of Kevin English.

Kutner was former group vice-president, Worldwide Purchasing, for General Motors.

'In the past year, Covisint has grown from a sound idea to a solid business with a bright future,' English said. 'With the company near profitability, my goals are accomplished. I leave Covisint on solid footing and poised for profitability in the 4th quarter of this year.'

English added: 'Harold Kutner is a remarkable executive with a long history of accomplishment in the automotive industry, the least of which is his standing as one of the visionaries behind the creation of Covisint.'
