Build a business case: developing custom apps

Mark Davison has quit Datrontech, where he was Intel business manager, to join his old boss, George Evans, at Making Markets. After six years at Datrontech, Davison left on Tuesday of this week and became marketing manager at Evans' Internet-based company. He took up his new post the following day. Davison's move comes in the wake of a string of recent departures from the Basingstoke-based distributor, which have included UK MD Martin Mulligan leaving in November after less than nine months, and George Evans, Datrontech's former head of components. Davison said: "I wanted to do something new. I wrote a wish list and it included working in a small environment and the entry-level within a company." The move coincided with Making Markets acquiring Portsmouth-based e-commerce company Internet UK. Internet UK developed the e-commerce software being used by Making Markets. The £3 million deal comprised £200,000 in cash and the rest in shares. A jubilant Evans gushed to The Register: "I was so impressed I bought the company." ®
