On 19 April 2010, Sage declared that its CEO, Paul Walker, had shown an enthusiasm for venturing down from his position, which he had held for 16 years. The Financial Times reported that his flight would prompt hypothesis over Sage's mergers and acquisitions, which have been a key part to the gathering's development in the previous 20 years.

Walker was one of the longest serving CEOs of a FTSE100 organization, just surpassed by Sir Martin Sorrell at WPP and Tullow Oil's Aidan Heavey.
