Simple Parcing of Data

EE Pros,

I have Email addresses that are NAME/Location/Location/Location formatted in a single cell.

I need to have a macro or formula that extracts and leaves only THE NAME.   So, in other words, when it reads the cell, and sees the first "/", it will delete the "/" and everything after that in the same cell.

Thank you in advance.
