Build a business case: developing custom apps

Martin Turner, the MD of CompuServe UK, has stepped down from the post after two years in the job. CompuServe UK declined to disclose any more details except to say that he is considering a number of options within the industry. He has been replaced by Michael van Swaaij, who was responsible for the company's operations in the Benelux countries and Scandinavia before taking up his new position. Little is known about van Swaaij except that he is in his early thirties and has worked his way up through the company. Turner joined CompuServe UK as product marketing manager in 1991 during the company's UK start-up phase. CompuServe UK, which has around 400,000 members, is owned by AOL Bertelsmann Europe, a joint venture between America Online and Bertelsmann AG, the world's third-largest media company. ®
