Roger Paul is to leave Landis by April after a two and a half year stint at the networking distributor. The European sales officer, and former Landis UK MD, today announced he was quitting the company. No replacement had yet been found, the company said. His next move was unknown, but a Landis representative said Paul had no plans to take up a position elsewhere in the industry. Paul originally joined Landis in October 1997 from rival distributor ilion to set up Landis' UK office. Earlier this year he took on his European role, but was back at Landis UK in September to oversee the Dutch company's acquisition of his former employer - ilion. Last month Mike Watkins, former ilion marketing director, was appointed Landis UK MD. Paul said his time at Landis had been "challenging, fun and extremely rewarding." "With the investment made over the last 12 months in systems and back office support, the addition of a local warehouse and the launch of www.landis.com in January, Landis is ready to make its next assault on the UK market." Paul Kuiken, chairman and CEO, said Paul's departure would be a loss to the company. He acknowledged that ilion had "suffered immeasurably" after Paul left. "However, he have discussed his wish to move on for some months and he has now successfully reorganised and integrated the UK business after the ilion acquisition," said Kuiken. ® See also: Landis gets ilion at last
