Build a business case: developing custom apps

Ajay Chowdhury - the man responsible for dragging LineOne out of the dumps and giving it a new sense of direction - has left the company.

The self-confessed Jethro Tull fan packed his bags last week. It's not known whether he went of his own accord or was forced out. A spokeswoman for LineOne said the former MD was "pursuing opportunities elsewhere".

What is certain is that Chowdhury is not too old to rock 'n' roll, to coin part of a phrase from a well known Tull tune. Nor should he be living in the past.

In that respect, it will be interesting to see where he will pop up next. A statement about his future is due to be published soon, although exactly when is not known.

LineOne has appointed former marketing director Mary Turner to take over Chowdhury's role as MD.

The Webco has also bolstered its management team by appointing former FD, Andy Harwood, to become LineOne's new CE. Before joining LineOne in 1998 he was Head of Finance and Business, BBC Drama.

As CE, one of Harwood's tasks is to develop emerging broadband and mobile services.

Chowdhury replaced Andrew Burke at LineOne a year ago when subscription numbers tumbled to around 80,000. ®
