NEC Technologies' boss resigns
By Robert Lemos

  Ending a 10-year career with NEC, Jerry Benson will resign from his position as president and CEO of subsidiary NEC Technologies Inc. as of March 31.

The 40-year-old Benson, who has led the company since May 1995, has had his hands full managing the transition of NEC Technologies' systems business over to Packard Bell NEC as part of their merger.

Looking ahead, Benson, who said he was resigning for personal reasons, indicated interest in pursuing a job with a company "that crosses and bridges the gap between the traditional microcomputer environment and the consumer electronics world."

In an interview, Benson said he was also considering joining a startup but declined to get more specific.
