Vodafone man to take chairman's seat when Jackson steps down

Michael Jackson is to step down from his chairmanship of FTSE100 software
provider Sage, according to reports in the press this morning.

The Daily Telegraph reports that Jackson’s post is to be taken by
outgoing Vodafone deputy chief executive Sir Julian Horn-Smith, with a formal
announcement taking place at Sage’s annual general meeting on 2 March.

Jackson’s appointment last year to the chairmanship of online poker company
PartyGaming has reportedly prompted concerns among shareholders of both
companies about his ability to work both jobs.
