CA Product Manager Bill Hunt: 1964-2012
May 22, 2012 Alex Woodie
Bill Hunt, the principle product manager for the 2E and Plex development tools at CA Technologies, died May 1 after a battle with cancer. He was just 47.
For the last 12 years, Hunt had been the driving force behind the 2E/Plex product line at CA. He was very active in the 2E/Plex community, and worked closely with customers and partners who use the high-level development tools, which continues to have a loyal following in the IBM i community.
The following statement was posted to the CA Plex CA 2E Global User Community website by Marie Godfrey, senior director of product management at CA, and Dayton Semerjian, general manager.
“It is with great sadness that we share the news that our friend and colleague Bill Hunt passed away yesterday.
Bill had a passion for everything he did and he loved his job here at CA Technologies. Just yesterday he would have celebrated his 12-year service anniversary. CA has lost an employee who lived the core values every day and was an inspiration to many as he fought his personal battle with his illness. Bill was thankful for the support and encouragement he received from his colleagues and often noted how much it sustained him during the difficult times. We thank you for that.
Bill was a principle product manager for CA Plex, 2E, CA Gen and several other important products offered by CA. He was highly influential in the establishment and cultivation of CA’s Customer Communities including the User Community Programs. Additionally, he was instrumental in driving the partner programs for his products. Bill was a valued member of our team and will be sorely missed, both professionally and personally.
We know you will keep Bill’s family, friends and colleagues in your thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.”
