People find blog posts here on a regular basis when they search for terms related to “Point2 Agent”. That would be because I’ve made several posts about Point2 — my website provider.
But something unusual began happening this week.
On Tuesday, 4 people found this blog by searching “Brendan King Resigns“. Brendan is the Point2 COO. This search term leads to a post I wrote about the Point2 CEO resigning on Sept 20. Though it seemed quite odd, I brushed this off as people confusing the COO and CEO.
But the visits from that term continue to roll in…
And they have been joined over the past couple of days by variations of these search terms:
Point2 managers resign
Point 2 agent resignations
all of which return some Point2 related post written here.
Hmmmmm……. this sure sounds like something is going on up in Saskatoon…..
A call placed to Point2 today requesting to speak to Brendan was met with “Roger is taking his calls, Brendan’s out of the office today.”
I can’t say for sure who “Roger” is, but I do know that Roger Noujeim is Point 2 Agent’s Public Relations Director. . .
I haven’t spoken to anyone directly at Point2 yet, but it sure seems like something is up…..
UPDATE 1: Found this out there in the blogiverse. It’s nothing conclusive, but there can’t be all that many companies in Saskatoon that have “lead architects” and “head designers”…
My previous employer in Saskatoon had a bit of a falling-out this week. Staff members were apparently upset with the way top execs were running the show, finally coming to a breaking point with many senior members walking out, including top management, lead architects and head designers.
UPDATE 2: A comment left in the blog linked to in Update 1 now mentions Point2 by name. Granted, it’s just a blog, not a sworn testimony. But….
UPDATE 3: Awful lot on interest in this post from people in Saskatoon, home of Point2 Agent… How about an anonymous comment?? 🙂
UPDATE 4: Comments appear to have been pulled from the post linked to in Update 1. Someone left a comment there linking to this post and asking if a Point2 customer should be concerned and shortly after that, all comments were gone. Seems like a legitimate question, and one I have myself. The commenter’s Blogger profile name was “PhoenixREGuy”. However, I am NOT “PhoenixREGuy” on Blogger. I can’t even remember my Blogger name, nor the last time I commented on a Blogger blog that didn’t allow me to enter my own name. Heck, I rarely comment on Blogger blogs because I can hardly read that silly captcha they use! Damn shame the comments were stripped as it was a very interesting discussion.
Update 5: Carey Tufts with Point2 posted this on RELiberation, Point2 Agent’s “Community Blog ” Platform:
News From Point2
Some news from the frigid depths of the Canadian prairies . . .
Earlier this week, Brendan King and Jeff Tomlin tendered their resignations to Point2. Others at the management level also chose to part ways with the company.
To all of Point2’s customers:
It would be ridiculous to say that this didn’t hurt. These people are visionaries, and have been very important to Point2 Technologies Inc. And I for one am a better person for all of their leadership, mentorship – and friendship.
Point2 is a strong company, however, with a great deal of talent, and while we could never presume to fill their shoes, we are filling their roles comfortably. As a Point2 member, you should not expect to experience any impact in terms of service, support, or product development.
Please don’t hesitate with any questions or concerns.
