UK has lost its sales director, Darrell Bluck, within two weeks of his appointment. The UK arm of the Taiwanese PC giant is said by sources to be awash with discontented staff, with Bluck just one of a growing number of departures. One source within the Acer UK channel said Bluck, who had been channel sales manager at Acer, was unhappy with events leading up to his promotion to the post of sales director. “Bluck heard that he was being passed over and that someone from inside Acer with a marketing background was getting the job. When he complained that the sales director ought to be someone with a strong sales pedigree, he was promoted to keep him happy,” the source said. Anita Bowles, Acer UK marketing director, was not available for comment. The source said that Bluck’s motive for leaving so suddenly was unclear but that some eight or nine other Acer staff were rumoured to have left the High Wycombe-based company Sources within the channel told The Register that within the last two weeks. A representative of Acer UK confirmed Bluck’s departure but gave no further details. “Well, he’s gone,” she said. “He wasn’t in the job very long at all.” Bluck was planning to establish a distribution company, but he could not be contacted to confirm this. ®
