Colin Daniels, founder and chairman of Danwood in Lincoln, suspended
The founder and chairman of the Lincoln business Danwood has been suspended along with three other senior directors.
Colin Daniels has been suspended from duties pending an investigation, which also involves Richard Coles, Peter Hopton and David Jones.
Chief executive Stephen Francis said the move was not "directly linked" to internal investigations into "accounting irregularities" at the Whisby Road-based printing equipment supplier.
Mr Francis said the suspensions and investigations were also separate from a 30-day consultation with around 430 sales staff around the country.
