David Child has stepped down as managing director of technology provider 1st Exchange.
Child, who joined The Exchange in 2003 and was largely responsible for the acquisition of 1st Software three years later, has decided to pursue other opportunities.
Replacing him from next month will be Chris Noblet, who joins from IT services business Ramesys.
Noblet will work with Steve Jones, who recently took up the role of executive deputy chairman following 1st Exchange's acquisition of N4.
Alastair Hazell, 1st Exchange chairman, said: "David Child has been instrumental in getting us to this enviable position.
"The company's growth over the last six years was substantially a result of his commitment and hard work. We all wish him well in the next stage of his career."
The appointments of Noblet and Jones add to the recent hires of intermediary director Andy Watts and enterprise director Gary Muchmore.
