The Mitsubishi Electric PC Division (Apricot) lost four senior staff this week in a bid to ensure its sales model stayed intact.
Brian Androlia, a vice president at the company and head of sales, is the highest profile member of staff to leave the company. The other three were Tim Taylor, head of UK sales and marketing, Ron Brise, head of manufacturing, and Derek Swindell, channel sales director.
James Blackledge, international head of marketing, said: ?The general feeling is we have ambitious plans for growth. Peter Horne, managing director of the company, thought there was a need for flattening the structure. All four have parted amicably.?
But insiders at Apricot said: ?As an organisation grows, you get too many layers.?
Should you link your data sets to add value, or leave them separate to reduce risk?
