The information technology products and services provider says Kleinfeld resigned from its board Sunday. He resigned from Morgan Stanley's board Friday.

Arconic announced Kleinfeld's exit a week ago.

Last week the hedge fund Elliott Management, which pushed Arconic to replace Kleinfeld for months, published a letter it said Kleinfeld sent to its founder and president, Paul Singer.
