Direct PC seller Gateway on Wednesday named Greg van den Dries as its vice president of solutions and promoted three other executives as part of its latest shuffle of top management. Van den Dries comes to Gateway from fitness company SportBrain, where he served as chief operating officer.
Gateway also gave Chief Technical Officer Bob Burnett the added title of senior vice president of hardware, giving him responsibility for the company's development of new computers. Burnett takes over from senior vice president Bart Brown, who left the company last month and "relocated to the Midwest to pursue other interests," according to a Gateway statement. Additionally, Gateway promoted John Heubusch to senior vice president of strategy and planning and Nemo Azamian to senior vice president of customer service and support.
