MarchFirst, the troubled Internet professional services firm, said on March 12 that it would seek a new CEO.

The company, which recently received a $150 million cash infusion from venture capital firm Francisco Partners, also announced the resignations of Chairman-CEO Robert Bernard, President-Chief Operating Officer Thomas Metz and Executive Vice President-client services Joseph Bong.

Steve Pollema, executive vice president-global operations, was named president.

A search committee for a new CEO was also appointed. Its members are David Stanton and Neil Garfinkel, both of Francisco Partners, and Barry Moore, vice chairman at global management consultant Kurt Salmon & Associates. Korn/Ferry International is handling the search.
