Translink's chief executive has resigned after just three months in the job - to become a gospel preacher.
David Strahan took on the role leading one of Northern Ireland's largest companies on October 27.
A statement issued by Translink on Monday morning said he would be leaving business life for personal reasons - to "devote his life to preaching the gospel".
Mr Strahan said: "It has been an immense privilege for me to lead some great organisations including Phoenix Supply Ltd, Dee Valley Group plc and latterly Translink. I am grateful for the opportunities I have had to make a difference in these organisations and appreciate the support I received from all my colleagues.
“I will continue to lead Translink until the Autumn of this year which allows time for my successor to be appointed. In the meantime I will continue to drive forward the efficiency and transformation programme I have already commenced and ensure that Translink delivers cost effective public transport services.
"I know many people may not understand this decision but, as this is a very personal matter, I ask that the media respect my privacy. I will not be making any further public comment on this issue."
Mr Strahan stepped into the role £44,000 worse off than his top-earning predecessor, Catherine Mason.Read more:
