A former partner


Senior Member
I'm reading Mafiaboy, by Michael Calce and I want to know in below text what does "a former partner " mean?
"Thomas Patterson, a former partner in Deloitte & Touche's Security Services Group, told TechNewsWorld that "the criminals aren't necessarily the Mafia; some Mid-Eastern and Asian crime
gangs are looking to the Internet to use the same old extortion threats," he said. "Its the same old story; just a new place to play." "

Thank you.
