The Week: People News - Phorm's UK MD steps down

Nick Barnett, the UK managing director of Phorm, has quit the internet service provider-based behavioural targeting company.

It is unknown whether he has a job to go to. Barnett worked at Phorm for two years and was responsible for developing and building partnerships with ad networks and publishers. Phorm has been dogged by setbacks in the past year, with many ISPs moving away from the service.
