Kevin O’Hara is out as CEO of Integra.

The competitive service provider announced on Monday that board member Robert Guth is taking over as interim CEO and president – the company’s fourth leader since 2011.

O’Hara was named head of Integra in December 2011.

Integra in its Sept. 8 press release did not explain O’Hara’s departure, and did not immediately respond on Tuesday to a request for more information.

Paul Sunu, chairman of Integra’s board, made the following statement on Monday: “We recognize Kevin O’Hara’s contributions to Integra and his leadership during a time of significant transition in the company. Integra’s progress under Kevin’s watch has led us to financial stability, a strengthened network infrastructure and a portfolio of products that align well with our strategic focus on the enterprise marketplace. That strategic direction will not change, and with a new leader at the helm, I look forward to accelerating our momentum in that marketplace and continuing to sharpen our execution against our strategy.”

Guth takes over as Integra continues its work to transform itself in to a fiber and managed services provider catering to larger businesses. It’s facing heavy competition from cable operator Comcast.

Guth joined the Integra board in 2009. He has held positions with companies including Level 3 Communications and TelCove. Integra is looking for a permanent CEO with the help of a search firm.
