Iomega president and CEO Jodie Glore has resigned, the company announced late yesterday.

Glore's resignation will be effective August 31. In a letter to shareholders, David J Dunn, chairman of Iomega's board of directors, said Glore is leaving for personal reasons.

"(Glore) informs me that he is not leaving for another position, and intends to take a vacation and spend time with his family," Dunn said in the letter.

Iomega is the manufacturer of PC storage devices, that it calls Jaz and Zip drives, and the recently-launched Clik PC Card Drive. The company also makes the Liquid Audio Player, a digital online music player.

Iomega restructured last June after a second-quarter loss, cutting 450 jobs and closing plants in San Jose and San Diego. Offices in France and Scotland were also consolidated.

The company suffered a second quarter net loss of seven cents per share.

Dunn will take over from Glore as acting president and CEO until a new CEO is hired.
