CA country manager, Tony Armfield, has resigned to pursue other interests. His departure comes just weeks after the software vendor’s vice-president of channel sales, Allan Smith, also left the company.
A spokesperson from CA Asia-Pacific and Japan said Armfield resignation was of his own volition and wasn’t linked to Smith’s exit.
The spokesperson also denied industry reports that the vendor had recently retrenched staff and claimed it had lost less than 10 employees over the past month.
“His [Armfield’s] resignation was not expected but is representative of the kind of employee mobility one would expect in such a dynamic industry,” the spokesperson said.
CA has 522 permanent staff, the spokesperson said.
The vendor’s Asia-Pacific and Japan corporate senior vice-president and general manager, Gavin Selkirk, will assume Armfield’s role until a permanent replacement is found.
Armfield joined CA in 2001 and was country manager of its New Zealand subsidiary before being promoted to area manager and managing director of CA Pacific.
"I have enjoyed managing CA’s considerable interests in this part of the world but feel it is now time for me to make some changes," Armfield said in a statement. "I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my CA Pacific colleagues well for the future, as they take the business to new heights.”
Smith, who resigned last month, was made vice-president of channel sales in June after a stint as Pacific sales manager.
