In a LinkedIn post announcing his resignation, Tait said that he's leaving after almost 10 years at Fujitsu.
"Hot on the heels of our Q1 earnings, today we announced that I'm leaving Fujitsu after nearly 10 thoroughly enjoyable years," the post reads.
"To my Fujitsu colleagues, thank you for your [sic] everything. I will miss you greatly. You are an incredible force and I am in awe of what you do for customers every day. Remember, the easy part of digitalisation has been done. It's now time for the difficult stuff. The stuff you excel in.
He added: "To our global president, Mr. [Takahito] Tokita, I leave knowing the company is in good hands. I wish you and Fujitsu all the very best."
Tait said he leaves at a time when Fujitsu's EMEIA (Europe, Middle East, India and Africa) business is bouncing back. He pointed to a 12 per cent jump in Fujitsu's stock price after what he claims was its best quarterly results in at least five years.
Revenues for the Japanese firm declined by 3.3 per cent to ¥867bn (€7.18bn) in its Q1 ending 30 June 2019.
Last year Fujitsu announced that it would shutter its last remaining production facility in Europe affecting 1,800 jobs. Just last week, the vendor announced it had found a buyer in Kontron, a subsidiary of Austrian channel partner S&T.
