Tech Data Mobile veep Jim Michel has resigned for "personal reasons" but says he is staying on board for a couple of months during the handover period.
The former head of LG's mobile biz in the UK and Ireland is to be replaced by Stephen Nolan, the EMEA head of vendors at the distie.

"We are going through a handover period that will take me into the summer. I'm leaving for personal reasons, got some things that I need to resolve which I couldn't do working 15 hours a day," he told us.
Once this is done Michel said he'd look for another role in the mobile sector.
Michel rocked up at TD Mobile in the autumn of 2011 when the business was branded Brightstar Europe, but it underwent a name change after Tech Data bought Brightstar's share in the joint venture.
TD Mobile UK parent C2000 said it does not comment on people exiting the business. ®
