Duncan McIntyre no longer works at Morse, the reseller he ran for 10 years until July 2007. That was when Morse demerged the sexier bit of the group, Monitise plc.
McIntyre jumped on board Monitise as executive chairman, but retained a seat on Morse's board until last week, when he handed in his resignation.
And how's this for a canned statement:"As Morse enters a new era of change with new leadership and direction," said McIntyre, "my retirement gives me the opportunity to pass on the baton of success and enables me to give more time to my chairmanship of Monitise plc and other business interests. I wish everyone continued success and would like to take this opportunity to thank all employees past and present for their support."
