Lewis steps down after two years at helm of Vislink

DUNCAN Lewis, the busy Cambridge-educated communications expert, is leaving VIslink after a little more than two years at the helm of the Dublin-based closed circuit TV systems firm.

Mr Lewis will retire from Vislink at the end of next month after what he quaintly termed the "vicissitudes" of restructuring the company.

Vislink has reinvented itself more often than Lady GaGa (right), saying in November that it would sell its marine and energy business and unveiling plans last month to slash a quarter of the workforce and shift product sourcing to Asia.

Mr Lewis, who likes to Twitter, has a bewildering CV that includes stints with everybody from ITV Studios to the Carlyle Group.

He will be replaced on a temporary basis by John Hawkins who is also due to become chairman in May.
