I think they fired him or he had to leave. His Linked in profile shows he is done in September. He has had 4 jobs in the last 5 years. That's usually a red flag.
I hate to see this happen. I'm sure he has a lot of valuable information obtained during our SNUP startup phase.

If you add to the picture the emotions that were spilled here by some emagineers a few months back then it sounds like John Coleman had some conflicts with locals.
If so then it's all for good.
Acy mentioned John Trumpetto - he is currently Manufacturing Manager .
Looking through his profile on LinkedIn I think that he is more a technical guy. He used to be a Senior Engineer Manager and then Senior Engineer at IBM for 22 years. Garce, or anyone else who knows insides of corporate ladder at IBM, is it a step down (from Sr. Engineer Manager to Sr. Engineer) or it's a sideway move ?
