Musical chairs is the name of the game at Ingram Micro, with theresignation of chief operating officer Jeff Rodek just a month after chiefexecutive Jerre Stead revealed plans to move on.
The distributor has no immediate plan to replace Rodek and instead plans toleave the task of appointing a chief operating officer to Stead's successor.
Meanwhile, Ingram's five regional presidents will report directly to Stead, acompany spokeswoman said.
Stead has set no timetable for his own departure and Ingram refused to commenton the progress of its search for his replacement, except to say that it wasongoing.
Rodek, who had been with the distributor since January 1995, left to becomechief executive of fledgling applications vendor Hyperion software.
He sat on the Hyperion board for the past 18 months.
Ingram's UK division has also seen change at the top this year, with formerchief executive Sandy Scott lasting just twelve months in the job. Scott was replaced in May by internal appointment Meinie Oldersma.
