David Petts is leaving Compaq UK for the PC vendor's head office in Houston. Petts, previously director of Compaq PC business unit in the UK, is moving to the US in three to four weeks. He has taken up the position of VP of marketing at Compaq CPCG (commercial personal computing group), according to Compaq. He will report to Mike Winkler. Petts sudden departure means he will not be around for the launch of the Prosignia range in the UK –- the desktops, servers and notebooks Compaq plans to sell direct to SMEs from next month. He was heavily involved in this announcement last month. His replacement in the UK will be David Wright, currently director of commercial personal business group.
