The PC Company's chief executive Rob Sweet has quit after less than a year in the role.

Sweet, who took over from founder Colin Brown, resigned from the largest local PC assembler to become his own boss.

"I'm sitting in my living room enjoying a beautiful day scheming on a strategy to buy a business even as we speak."

Sweet says he's "a bit sick of working for other people" and wants to return to his roots in the agricultural sector.

"I've got my eye on several different businesses in the agricultural sector."

Sweet began his career in the agri-sciences.

"I stumbled into IT through broadcasting and telecommunications."

He says it was simply time for a change.

"I've been in senior management roles for about 15 years and I had a chat with the family and with various other people and decided I wanted to take a different direction."

Sweet is looking into the technology side of agriculture.

"Things like plastics for making fertiliser spreaders and calf feeders. Effluent disposal systems and things like that."

Neither Colin Brown or marketing manager Kerry Mancer were available to comment as both are returning from the IT trade fair CeBIT in Hannover, Germany.
