Harris Interactive parts company with CFO after five months

North America

US— Robert Cox has resigned from his position as chief financial officer at Harris Interactive after only five months.

Cox (pictured) joined the firm in June from DealerTrack Holdings, which provides software and data services for the automotive retail industry.

In a statement, Harris said that Cox has stepped down to “pursue other career opportunities” and stressed that his departure was “not based on any disagreement with the company’s accounting principles or practices or financial statement disclosures”.

Principal accounting officer and global controller Erik Narowski will take on the role of interim CFO from 20 November while the firm looks for a permanent replacement. Harris said that it has hired a “leading executive search firm” to handle the task.
