Bendheim Leaves Colibri

Thomas Bendheim, president and chief executive officer of The Colibri Group, has left the company, due to “differences of opinion on the future direction of the company,” according to a brief statement from the Providence, R.I.–based supplier. The company’s board of directors named Jim Fleet as the new president and CEO. In the statement, Colibri said that Bendheim left “to pursue other interests.” Bendheim was named president and CEO of Colibri in December 2005 by the investors group that bought the company. He followed Frederick N. Levinger, who built the company into a $100 million business. Levinger resigned his post as nonexecutive chairman a few months after Bendheim succeeded him.
