Symbian CEO Lee Williams, exits the Foundation

Just got this in from Symbian‘s PR: CEO Lee Williams will leave the Symbian Foundation with immediate effect.

The Foundation’s HR Director, Steve Warner reports:

“The Symbian Foundation is today announcing that Lee M. Williams has stepped down from his position as Executive Director for personal reasons. We thank Lee for his work over the past two years and wish him all the best in his future ventures.”

“The Board of Directors has appointed Tim Holbrow, formerly the Symbian Foundation’s CFO, to the position of Executive Director with immediate effect. We congratulate Tim and welcome him to his new role.”

Update: Ben over at The Really Mobile Project had this to say: Rumour: Symbian Foundation to be wound up?
