Tony Kirby dusts off his gardening tools

My moles tell me that STP stalwart Tony Kirby is getting his fingers green courtesy of a stint of gardening leave from Accenture.

Tony's been around the block a few times, taking on roles at Swift, GSTPA, Bolero, Reuters, Deutsche Bourse, and SmartStream, before pitching up at Accenture as UK regional sales director and associate partner of data management services in February 05.

Spotted in the wild at an Omgeo press briefing this morning, Tony took his leave before we could pin him down on his future plans or ask any awkward questions about what his departure implies for Accenture's amibitions in the data management space.
