Barneveld, The Netherlands and Herndon, Va., Jan. 4 – Baan Company announced that Mary Coleman has resigned as Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately, to pursue other technology-related opportunities nearer her home in Silicon Valley. Current Chairman of the Baan Supervisory Board Pierre Everaert has assumed the role of Interim CEO while the search for a permanent CEO is underway. During that time, Everaert will step down from his duties on the Supervisory Board. Current Supervisory Board member Joop Janssen will serve as Chairman of the Supervisory Board until Everaert is able to return to that position when the CEO post has been filled.

"As we move past the Year 2000 challenge that hit the entire enterprise applications industry last year, I am positive about the business opportunities for the company and in our ability to compete effectively," said Everaert. "Customer and analyst feedback during the recent BaanWorld in Vienna, Austria demonstrates that our integrated products and e-business strategies are right on target. And I want all our customers to know that this transition will not in any way negatively impact our continued commitment to them and our ability to serve them."
