Tomkins quits as Sun director

Richard Tomkins has resigned as head of Sun Diagnostics in the UK after more than 20 years in the job. His departure appears to have taken Sun by surprise – no official statement has been issued – although a spokesman confirms that the company has begun the process of recruiting a new director.

The King's Lynn, Norfolk-based business is the engine diagnostics and emissions testing equipment division of the £1.28bn turnover US automotive tool manufacturer Snap-on Incorporated.

UK staff have been told that Tomkins has left to pursue other interests. While the search is on for a new chief, Sun's operations will be run by Amsterdam-based Brendan O'Malley, vice-president of Sun Diagnostics International and MD of Snap-on UK Holdings. Tomkins was not available for comment.
