in brief Sun Microsystems VP and ANZ managing director, Duncan Bennet, has resigned from the company less than a year after being permanently appointed to the position to pursue other interests.

The acting replacement for Bennet's role will be Andrew Goodlace, who was most recently Sun Microsystems' ANZ sales director.

In a statement, Sun's Asia Pacific president, Lionel Lim, said: "Duncan is highly respected by his peers, staff and colleagues in the industry and we thank him for his exceptional leadership and many contributions over the last 10 years".

Bennet's resignation comes on the back of a $100 million drop in Australian revenue and Sun's global cut of 6,000 staff.
