The CEO of TNT Express will leave the company within the next week, the company announced today, to "pursue an external career opportunity." CFO Bernard Bot will take over as interim CEO when Marie-Christine Lombard leaves. "This development has no bearing on the intended merger with UPS, which we expect to complete in early 2013," said TNT. UPS plans to acquire TNT for $6.51 billion.
