The head of the Symbian Foundation, Lee Williams, has quit.

According to a statement from Symbian today, Williams stepped down for "personal reasons." He has been immediately replaced with Tim Holbrow, the foundation's chief financial officer.

Williams' departure is the latest in a string of exits associated with the mobile operating system, which--since Samsung and Sony Ericsson abandoned the platform in the last month--is now supported only by Nokia, Fujitsu, and Sharp. Recent months have seen the resignations of Nokia chief Olli Pekka-Kallasvuo, smartphone division chief Anssi Vanjoki, and Ari Jaaksi, the chief of Nokia's other OS, Meego.
