BLUMENTHAL LEAVES RKL Featured

Stuart Blumenthal, Microaccounting SolutionsStuart Blumenthal is leaving RKL eSolutions after a year as VP of consulting at the Lancaster, Pa.-based Sage reseller. Blumenthal is moving to Dallas, Texas-based Microaccounting Solutions to head up its SaaS, Hosting, and Business Intelligence division. He came to RKL in November 2013 after eight years and eight months at Information Systems Management with the sale of that VAR's Sage 500 operations to RKL.

Blumenthal described the new job as meaning that he was "Getting out of the Sage world after 20 years." RKL picked up the 500 operations to profit from the installed base while others are departing after Sage left them with the impression it waffled on the future of the product. Blumenthal is hardly the first experienced reseller of desktop applications to move to the hosting business. In January, Linda Rose sold Rose Business Solutions to concentrate of her RoseAsp business. We are likely to see more and I am thinking I should have listened to Rose's suggestion to make hosters eligible for the VAR Stars selection. We'll thank about it when Top 100 rolls around in the spring.
