ClickSoftware back to one CEO

BURLINGTON — ClickSoftware Technologies Ltd. said Tuesday that its co-CEO Hannan Carmeli is resigning from the business software company after just two months in the job. The company said that it is reverting back to having just one chief executive.

The board determined that having two leaders was ‘‘not practical,’’ said chairman Israel Borovich.

Company founder Moshe BenBassat will continue as CEO.

Carmeli joined ClickSoftware in 1996. He was promoted to CEO in June. At the time, the company said that having two CEOs would accelerate growth.
