On April 5, the Brad­ford-based group said Stephen Ham­mell was mov­ing from fi­nance di­rec­tor to be­come the new chief ex­ec­u­tive, re­plac­ing Ian Mann. On Mon­day the group said Mr Ham­mell has re­signed and Mr Mann has re­joined the board as an ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor.

Non-ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Steve Vaughan has also re­signed.

Lucy Sharp, pre­vi­ously the

COO of the com­pany and an ex­ec­u­tive board di­rec­tor, has been ap­pointed in­terim CEO and David Mathew­son, non-ex­ec­u­tive chair­man, will over­see the fi­nance func­tion whilst a re­view of the busi­ness is com­pleted.

El­iz­a­beth Gooch, the for­mer CEO of EG So­lu­tions, will be­come a nonex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor.

The board said ECSC can be a suc­cess­ful growth com­pany in the cy­ber se­cu­rity sec­tor and it will be work­ing to en­sure the com­pany achieves its mar­ket po­ten­tial.

Mr Mathew­son said: “I am de­lighted to have some­one of the stature and rel­e­vant ex­pe­ri­ence of El­iz­a­beth join­ing us. I would also like to take this op­por­tu­nity to thank Steve Vaughan and Steve Ham­mell for their sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to the com­pany.”
