Technology Channels Association (TCA) founder Keith Warburton has confirmed he is ending his 18-year association with the trade body to pursue other ventures.
Warburton (pictured) departs after completing the TCA's transition into CompTIA, after the two organisations merged last year.
"There have been many changes in the ICT channel since I set up the association, and I am delighted to have been able to see the TCA become part of such a large and prestigious group as CompTIA," he added. "I am sure there are interesting times ahead for the members."
Warburton founded the Professional Computing Association (PCA) in 1993. Two years ago, the organisation teamed up with the Mac Technology Association to form the TCA. Shortly afterwards, long-time PCA chief executive Warburton stepped up to a role as TCA president.
He revealed today that a new venture is already afoot and will launch in a few weeks' time.
"What I can say is that it is in one of the most profitable parts of the ICT world, and probably the one that is set to grow fastest," said Warburton. "It is a technology which will have a huge impact upon the working lives of many people."
