The president and chief executive of CRM supplier Pivotal has left the company.

Bo Manning has been replaced by Pivotal veteran Divesh Sisodraker, formerly the company's chief financial officer.

Manning's departure comes four months after Chinadotcom bought Pivotal.

Chinadotcom recast the struggling developer's technology as a component of its own broader ERP suite, which the company sells worldwide but targets at the Asia-Pacific market.

Manning, who joined Pivotal in 2001, initially said he would stay with the company after the acquisition.

Instead, he will take over as chief executive of Orchestria, which produces corporate information-policy compliance software.
