Seattle software company Entellium said its chief executive and head of finance have resigned, and its board was convening with remaining executives Thursday to determine the company’s course of action.
Chief Executive Paul “P.J.” Johnston and Senior Vice President Parrish Jones “have resigned from the company, effective immediately,” the company said late Wednesday. Entellium did not disclose details of the departures.
After the resignations, Entellium removed any reference to the two executives on its Web site, including a blog written by Johnston and a description of them among the management team.
The private company makes customer-relationship-management software for small businesses.
