After nine years in channel programs, Michael Silmont, who served as national strategic alliances manager for CCH, is resigning to become COO of a Vancouver energy conservation software company. In his four years with CCH, Silmont was responsible for the reseller program for CCH’s sales-and-use tax initiatives, its first VAR channel.

Prior to that, he spent five years with F9, which has been subsumed via a number of acquisitions and is now somewhere in the belly of Infor. His duties will be handled by Carl Stockholm, who has become national sales manager of the sales tax group. CCH seems to have pulled back its sales-and use-tax effort a bit over the last three years, at least in the sense it is not buying the big booths right in front of entrance for Microsoft Convergence or buying big sponsorships at Sage shows.
