GreenBytes’ O’Donnell resigns, company still ‘full-speed ahead’

PROVIDENCE – GreenBytes Chairman and CEO Stephen O’Donnell has resigned from the company effective Sept. 27, according to a statement that appeared on U.K. technology news website Register on Sept. 30.

The statement, confirmed by GreenBytes spokesman Michael Robinson, said that O’Donnell resigned in order to deal with “pressing personal obligations back home in the United Kingdom.”

“As GreenBytes is based in Providence, R.I., these obligations would prevent [O’Donnell] from effectively carrying out his day-to-day responsibilities as the company’s chief executive,” the statement read. “We respectfully acknowledge Steve’s situation, thank him for his service to the company, and wish him well in his future endeavors.”

Robinson told Providence Business News that the separation was a mutual decision between O’Donnell and GreenBytes, and that O’Donnell’s resignation is not indicative of massive changes at the desktop-virtualization company.

“GreenBytes is still full-speed ahead,” said Robinson. “We’re very optimistic about the future and where we’re headed.”

He pointed to a quote in the Register article from Robert Petrocelli, GreenBytes founder and chief technology officer, who said in response to O’Donnell’s departure, “I can’t shed much light on any details. But you would be very wrong to interpret recent events as anything other than positive for GreenBytes.”

At present, GreenBytes has not made any formal announcement regarding O’Donnell’s resignation or a possible replacement, but Robinson said the issue of naming a new CEO is a “high priority” for the company.
