Simonyi taps former Verisign and Oracle exec

Ex-Microsoft guru Charles Simonyi’s Bellevue startup, Intentional Software, hired Francois Steiger to run its international group and Budapest research operations.

Steiger was previously Verisign’s senior VP and general manager for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. He’ll work out of Intentional’s new international HQ in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Back in 1991, while at Oracle, Steiger received a “most valuable player” award from Larry Ellison.

Is Intentional ready for funding? Steiger also has experience working as a venture capitalist in London, and he helped take BroadVision public in 1996.
