Photo-Me boss out of the picture

EMBATTLED photo booth operator Photo-Me International yesterday announced the resignation of chief executive Thierry Barel, who has been headhunted, as it posted a third-quarter pre-tax loss.

The company said UK sales had fallen in the three months to 10 March, but that, for the nine months to 31 January, total revenue on continuing businesses was up 9 per cent at 168 million.
