INDIANAPOLIS (AP) ¿ Hurco Companies Inc., a computer control and software maker, said Thursday that James D. Fabris will resign as president and chief operating officer as of Oct. 31.

Hurco said in a release that Fabris is leaving to pursue other interests.

The company said CEO Michael Doar will handle Fabris' responsibilities for the "foreseeable future."
