Reunert has instituted proceedings against John Holdsworth, the ex-CEO and major shareholder of ECN Telecommunications and his new business AppChat.
Reunert said in a SENS announcement that it seeks to enforce contractual restraint of trade and confidentiality undertakings given by Holdsworth in favour of Reunert. This followed Reunert’s acquisition of the ECN Telecommunications business in June last year.
ECN Telecommunications now operates as Nashua ECN, a division of Reunert Limited.
“The undertakings are contained in Mr Holdsworth`s contract of employment and in the termination agreement entered into between Mr Holdsworth and Reunert when he left Reunert`s employment in November 2011,” Reunert said.
