Resigned: Point2 C.O.O Brendan King, Jeff Tomlin VP of Business, Jason Collins and others
I first became aware of it in the forums when Eric Blackwell
posted about a possible Point2 Implosion as Eric reported reading
on Jay Thompson's blog
something shaking at point 2 agent that Brendan King, C.O.O of
Point2 Agent had resigned. I have been following the story a bit
since then, and haven't really seen anything concrete from Point 2
themselves, however I was reading on Active Rain (Becky Troutt)
"Ches Hagen 11 yrs - VP of Cat/Heavy Equipment
Jason Collins 10 yrs - Chief Technology Officer
Brendan King 9 yrs - Chief Operating Officer
John Fothergill 9 yrs - VP of Product Development
Jon Lesvesque 9 yrs - VP of Systems and IT
Jeff Tomlin 6 yrs - VP of Business Development
Allan Wolinski 10 yrs - support team manager
Greg Miller, VP of Marketing"
Had all resigned. She also stated that Point2 would be issuing a full release within the next 48 hours. Anyone else totally interested in what that release will look like? I am totally curious as to what is going on over there with my Canadian neighbors.
It must be hard on them right now, first with the sex scandal with their CEO Wendel, and now this. I visited them last winter, and I have to say, what a great company (From an outsiders perspective) and what great people (At least those that I met) - Although I am starting to feel like I don't know anyone there, as everyone I spent time with seems now to be gone from the company.
To all Point2 employees
It's near Christmas, (Always a stressful time in of itself) and
to have things in such a state of unrest can no doubt have you
feeling uneasy - For what it is worth, I am not going to get into
fueling speculation as to what the future of Point2 is, instead I
would like to offer my best wishes, you were all great to me when I
visited, and although I am sure this is a stressful time for you -
try to focus on what is important this season, that is family and
friends. I am sure they are all there with you and will support you
no matter what happens, and to all you great people that made
myself and my staff feel so welcome - you have our support and best
wishes during this time of speculation and uncertainty.
I and my team support you - and hope that the rumors flying around right now are unfounded and you can get back to being the great company you seemed to be when I came to visit you last year.
Have a great and safe holiday
