Wife’s sudden departure may hold answer

Martin Turner, the MD of CompuServe UK, did not voluntarily step down from the post after two years in the job, as reported by The Register on Friday. According to sources close to the company he was sacked - although the circumstances surrounding his dismissal still remain a mystery. Apparently, Turner only found out that he way getting the elbow when he returned from holiday to find the entire contents of his office had been packed into boxes ready to be shipped out. His wife Mary, who was the marketing director at CompuServe, has now also left the company. A spokeswoman for CompuServe confirmed that both Martin and Mary Turner had left the company but refused to elaborate. "We have already issued a statement, I can't say any more," she said. ®
