The company said it will now look to quickly appoint an acting chief executive, pending further discussions on appointing a permanent successor.
Michael Heller, Chairman of EDP, said: 'It is difficult to overstate the significant contribution that Richard made to building EDP over 37 years. His enthusiasm was tireless. He led the transformation of the Group from a computer bureau, through a hardware seller to now a software and services business enjoying growing success. At the same time he has developed a loyal and capable team around him.'
