Capita's IT Services top dog legs it after just 6 months

Jogs out door left open by biz boss after mega redundancy programme

Capita IT Services boss Mark Quartermaine is leaving the company just six months after he landed the job. He follows operations director Russ Hewitt, who quit the firm a month ago.

In an announcement to employees, seen by The Channel, Mark Wyllie, executive director at Capita, said that Quartermaine would be heading for the door tomorrow.

"I would like to thank Mark for his efforts in helping to lead our business through this latest stage of our transformation programme, and he takes with him our best wishes for the future," Wyllie said.

Wyllie will be stepping up to the plate and back into his old job as managing director while the firm searches for a successor for Quartermaine. Wyllie said one of his key priorities would be to "drive the transformation activities".

The company has been going through every kind of shake-up going, with Quartermaine joining as CEO in February, a massive redundancy programme that threatened a thousand workers but ended up letting between 50 and 100 staff go, Hewitt leaving last month and now Quartermaine on the way out.

The extensive changes at the company are big enough to get their own name, the Unity programme, a "fundamental redesign of the core business operating model".

Capita wouldn't comment on the managing director's exit. ®
