Keith Warburton has decided to leave the TCA, the trade association he founded 18 years ago, after completing the transition to CompTIA.
The TCA was merged into CompTIA last October uniting the trade body with the technology industry association to create a single channel entity that provided information, professional certifications and representation for resellers.
"There have been many changes in the ICT channel since I set up the association, and I am delighted to have been able to see the TCA become part of such a large and prestigious group as CompTIA. I am sure there are interesting times ahead for the members," said Warburton.
"I am now involved in a new venture. I have discussed it with quite a few key industry people and the most common response is "very exciting"," he added it would be launching in a few weeks.
"What I can say is that it is in one of the most profitable parts of the ICT world, and probably the one that is set to grow fastest; it is a technology which will have a huge impact upon the working lives of many people," he said.
