Mountain View, Calif. (Jan. 7, 2004) -- Just weeks after restructuring its Professional Accounting Solutions unit into two divisions, accounting software provider Intuit Inc. said that Tom Allanson, senior vice president of the consumer tax group, and recently hired chief marketing officer, Tom Weigman, are leaving the company.

Allanson’s responsibilities will be overseen on an interim basis by Intuit president and chief executive Steve Bennett.

Weigman, whose background included positions at both Procter & Gamble and Sprint, was just hired in late August. His marketing duties will be absorbed by Raymond Stern, Intuit’s senior vice president of corporate strategy and development.

Intuit representatives did not return phone calls by press time.

The latest round of departures comes on the heels of Intuit splitting its PAS unit into two groups, Pro Tax, which encompasses the company’s tax compliance software units -- Pro Series and Lacerte -- and Accountant Central, a unit responsible for driving the company’s overall accounting strategy.

Brad Smith was tapped to head Accountant Central and Karl Grass leads Pro Tax. Dan Manack, who formerly led the PAS unit, was slated to leave the company this month following a transition period.
