Insight's managing director Emma de Sousa has called off her move to Outsourcery and will stay at Insight instead.
The UK boss put out a statement this morning confirming that she is set to stay at the reseller whose UK business she has run for seven years.
In November, de Sousa announced her plans to leave Insight to become Manchester firm Outsourcery's managing director and was due to start on 1 April.
In a statement to the London Stock Exchange, Outsourcery's chairman Ken Olisa said:
"While we are naturally disappointed by Emma's decision, we fully understand it. We will not be enforcing the terms of her contract. On behalf of the board, I wish her a safe pregnancy and success in the pursuit of whatever career decision she now chooses to make."
The company added that her pregnancy would prevent her from starting until 2017 at the earliest and "as such, and in order to keep pace with the company's plans, Outsourcery has re-initiated its search for a leadership role to drive sales and marketing activity, and will look to make an appointment as early as practicable".
The firm has been "truly supportive and understanding", said de Sousa, adding that she worked closely with the team through her decision-making process.
"A significant change in my personal circumstances has driven me to re-evaluate my personal and professional future," she said. "The outcome is that I no longer feel able to pursue the opportunity with Outsourcery and intend to continue, and enhance my journey with Insight."
She added that she is excited to continue at the US-headquartered giant.
"I am committed to Insight and the team we have built in the UK is one that I am extremely proud of," she said. "They have once again in 2015 demonstrated the ability to grow market share, increase client satisfaction and execute against our business strategy. I have always been, and remain passionate about the success of this team.
"While the UK business continues to go from strength to strength, it is also fundamentally important to me that I contribute to the transformation of Insight, not only in the UK but across our EMEA geography. Following consultation with the senior leadership team at Insight, I am confident that there is a bigger role for me to play in the transformation of our EMEA business."
