Forbidden Technologies’ share price dropped by 14% last week following the news that its chief executive Aziz Musa has resigned for personal reasons.

Musa was appointed to the role in October 2015, having previously been marketing and consumer products director.

In a statement, he said: “The stress and strain of being a public company CEO were simply too much for myself and my family.”

David Main, currently chairman of the cloud video editing technology company, has taken over as interim chief executive while a permanent replacement is sought.
