Keen president leaves after one month

Portland footwear company Keen's president Mike Abbott is moving on after joining the company a month ago.

"Keen has made the difficult decision to part ways with Mike Abbott," spokeswoman Deborah Pleva said Tuesday, reading from a statement. "We wish him the best of luck with his future pursuits. Keen will continue to be run by its founder, owner and CEO, Rory Fuerst."

Abbott was named Keen president June 3 in the wake of a search that lasted more than a year.

Abbott's first day on the job was announced as July 8.
