DotNetNuke is on the move. Not only have they picked up some serious cash through some Series A Funding -- the amount of which they don't seem to want to disclose -- but they have also brought in a new CEO, Navin Nagiah, to run the show.

With over 10 years experience in the role of CEO or General Manager of various software/technology companies and the expectation is that he will help drive the market expansion of DotNetNuke.

Nagiah will take over from Nik Kalyani and will join Shaun Walker, creator and Chief Architect of the open source .Net CMS on the Board of Directors.

Apparently Kalyani is not going away, but shifting his focus to product innovation as the Director of Products and Strategy.
