Guardian iT loses finance director

Disaster recovery solutions provider Guardian iT has suffered a double blow after announcing a profits warning and the imminent departure of its finance director.

Peter Jakob will be standing down as group FD in November, after six years in the role, indicating that he intends to be involved in early stage ventures, but agreed to remain until a suitable replacement as finance director was appointed.

Following the announcement, the board of Guardian has appointed KPMG-qualified chartered accountant Neal Roberts to the position, with effect from December. Roberts is currently group FD of distribution company Specialist Computer Holdings.

Peter MacLean, chief executive of Guardian, said: ‘We are extremely sorry to be losing Peter and we wish him well in his new ventures.’Guardian’s results for the six months ended 30 June will be issued on 3 September. It is anticipated that these will show conditions in the web-hosting market have worsened and will impact on the results of iXguardian, its web hosting and managed infrastructure division.
