QLogic COO Quits

The revolving door continues to spin over at 8-Gbit/s specialist QLogic, with the resignation of president and COO Jeff Benck late last week.

Benck had spent less than a year with the company.

The COO's departure comes just a couple of months after QLogic's CFO Tony Massetti jumped ship to become finance chief at retail giant NCR, leaving a widening hole in the middle of the vendor's management team.

A form 8-K filed with the SEC last week confirmed that Benck resigned from the company on Friday, although the precise details of his departure remain unclear.

Prior to joining QLogic, Benck was at the forefront of IBM's booming blade business, as the vendor's vice president of modular and blade systems development between May 2005 and April 2007.
