Innovative Interfaces named John Rose as its new Director of New Sales, North America. Rose comes to Innovative from LibLime, a company that provides services surrounding the opens source Koha ILS. At LibLime, Rose was Vice President Strategic Markets. Rose had also worked for SirsiDynix and for Endeavor Information Systems. It's not unusual to see industry veterans such as Rose shift among companies over the course of a career. It is interesting when such shifts cross companies involved with open source and proprietary ILS products.
