UPDATE 27 Nov 2009: Tunstall’s confirmatory statement.
Original post, 26 Nov 2009:
The disappearance of James Buckley’s profile from the Tunstall management team pages of their website seems to confirm the rumour that after 8 years with the company and 5 years as CEO he has, without all the usual Tunstall publicity, left.
The word is that Malcolm Miller has become Executive Chairman while the Board seeks a new CEO. [Hmm… wonder if they will advertise on Telecare Aware? We are read by the savviest people in the field…]
The reasons for Mr Buckley’s departure are not yet known, but he has not had a happy time recently with the publication of an interview he’d probably rather forget in the Times Travel Supplement and having to cut the workforce by 10% after a slump in sales. And, of course, it may be that major investor Charterhouse Capital want to look to someone else to deliver the return on their investment they were expecting.
