Carletti Makes Surprise Exit from Telekurs, Buser to Act as Interim Head

Subscribe to our newsletter

Just one month after the announcement of its rebrand and weeks after its decision to up its stakes in the valuations business, SIX Telekurs has announced that Marc Carletti, CEO of its Financial Information division and a member of the group’s executive board, has decided to leave the company of his “own volition”.

According to a statement, the board of directors and group executive board of SIX Group “regret his departure”, indicating that perhaps this was an unplanned move. SIX Telekurs has stated that it is unable to comment on the circumstances of his departure and that Carletti is likewise unavailable to give comment.

A spokesperson for the vendor was able to reveal that there will be a “normal selection and decision making process” with regards to finding a permanent replacement for Carletti. In the interim period, Jörg Buser, current CEO of Swiss software firm Rolotec, will be assuming the role on an interim basis.

This leaves the vendor in a somewhat difficult position, given its aggressive plans for growth, which Carletti discussed last week (see Telekurs Rebrands, Partners with ValuePrice and Sets Sights on Valuations, 5 September 2008). Exactly how this will impact its short term goals and current projects is as yet unclear, but this level of uncertainty will certainly not help matters in the current unstable economic climate.
