Former Diligent Board Member Services CEO Brian Henry has left the company.
Henry was caught up in controversy when, in 2007, he resigned as CEO after it was revealed he had been involved with EnergyCorp, a 1980s sharemarket high-flyer that went out of business after the 1987 crash.
Henry founded Diligent, which makes software for delivering materials for meetings of boards of directors, in the 1990s. The company is now based in New York, but its software division is located in Christchurch and it is listed on the NZX.
Henry stayed on in a sales role after resigning as CEO; according to a statement by Diligent on the NZX, “Mr Henry’s role promoting sales channel partners will be taken on by one of Diligent’s senior sales staff members”.
Henry, who will remain one of Diligent’s largest shareholders, is leaving “to pursue other business opportunities”, according to the statement.
A detailed statement about Diligent’s financial position was posted on the NZX last month.
