Making Markets has seen a parting of the ways between its two founders George Evans and Julia Duthie. Duthie, formerly Making Markets commercial director, has quit the company and its flagship service Send IT Now to join US start-up pingpong.com. Pingpong.com is Making Markets’ financial backer. But the company is pulling out its cash this week to pursue its data-tracking software services, taking Duthie with it. She is currently in California. Evans will continue his role as MD at Making Markets, which recently moved to offices in Kingston, south London. He said he was sad at Duthie’s departure and described the split with Making Markets’ financier as "amicable". "There just weren’t enough funds to go around," said Evans. "Pingpong.com is now going to develop its traceability software into a bigger idea for the Web, and Making Markets is looking for funding to continue with Send IT Now." Send IT Now is an on-line service which informs resellers of the latest distributor and vendor trade offers. Mark Davison, who joined Making Markets as its marketing manager from Datrontech in January, has also left the company. According to Evans, Davison wanted to pursue other interests but has not yet taken a post elsewhere. ®
