Sandy Scott has left his position as head of Ingram Micro UK although the it has not been stated officially whether he jumped or was pushed.
Scott's swift departure followed the announcement in March that the US distributor would cut 1,400 jobs. Ingram also admitted earlier this month that it was being forced to raise prices due to market pressure.
One source suggested that the distributor's poor performance had resulted in Scott having to fall on his sword.
He joined Ingram last year from private health insurance company PPP, with a plan to revitalise the distributor.
