Sun Microsystems’ new CFO is comeback king

Mike Lehman, chief financial officer at Sun Microsystems from 1998 and 2002,
has rejoined the software company replacing Steve McGowan, who announced
his decision to retire as CFO in October last year.

Lehman has been working as a consultant at Sun since his own ‘retirement’ in
2002. Before joining Sun in 1998 he was senior manager in the San Francisco
office of PricewaterhouseCoopers

Speaking on his appointment, Lehman said: ‘Having now tried retirement
briefly, I find that I like being involved in leading change and driving the
business more directly.’

Meanwhile, in other executive appointment, Sun has named Robert Finocchio Jr.
to its board with immediate effect. He will join Sun’s audit committee as an
audit committee financial expert.
