Hewlett-Packard has confirmed to staff that long serving channel director Dave Poskett is to leave the organisation early next year.
This ends months of talk among the distributor and reseller community when it became clear that the Solutions Partner Organisation which Poskett headed up was to be dramatically overhauled.
In a letter to UK staff, Jos Brenkel, head of Personal Systems Group for the Middle East, Mediterranean and Africa (MEMA) - who had also been caretaking the UK division until recently - informed them that Poskett would leave on 6 January.
"It is with regret that I announce that after 25 years service with HP, Dave Poskett has decided to pursue a career outside [of the company]," he said.
According to reseller sources, Poskett was unveiled to them as channel director for PSG last month but the role was later handed to Paul Hunter.
Poskett and HP were unavailable to comment.
