A previously announced executive change at SiGEM Inc. has been called off and Paul Bennett will not be taking over as president and COO of the Ottawa-based firm (RoW, Sept. 18/01). He was waiting for approval from Immigration Canada on entry into the country, but before that could be given, he decided to not accept the position. Bennett has also resigned his position on the board of directors. He was previously the director of SiGEM’s UK operation. Bennett said in a release that it was because of personal reasons that he could not take the position. The company’s current CEO, Herb Woods, will continue to perform day-to-day operations until a replacement can be found.
