Yvonne Ferguson has left her post as chief information officer (CIO) at Royal Mail, Computer Weekly has learned,...

making her the second CIO to leave the company this year.

In April Robin Dargue resigned as CIO amid a £1.2bn transformation project he was hired to lead in late 2007.

Former Transport for London IT chief Yvonne Ferguson had previously been recruited to work for Dargue and was appointed as the new CIO in June, only to leave six months later, according to sources.

The change comes at the end of a testing year for Royal Mail. In September, a report was published which highlighted the failures of the postal service in mitigating its decline in the face of advances in digital media. The coalition government now intends to sell off part of Royal Mail, while separating it from the Post Office network.

Royal Mail was unable to comment.
