Internet professional services firm U.S. Interactive, Cupertino, Calif., announced that its chief operating officer, executive VP Jim Huser is resigning effective Nov. 30, to pursue other interests. No successor has been named. Mr. Huser joined the company in May 1999. U.S. Interactive, which recently announced it was relocating its headquarters from Philadelphia to Cupertino, has been subject to the same downturn in business as many of its peers. Earlier in November, it announced it would be cutting 28% of its workforce and closing offices after posting a larger-than-expected third-quarter operating loss. U.S. Interactive had an operating loss of $45.7 million for the third quarter ended Sept. 30, compared with an operating loss of $4.1 million in the same period a year ago.
