SThree Says Gary Elden Will Succeed Russell Clements As CEO - Quick Facts

Sthree Plc (STHR.L) announced that Russell Clements, chief executive officer, or CEO, is to retire from the Board at the conclusion of its next Annual General Meeting in April 2013 after more than twenty six years with the Group.

Clements will be succeeded as CEO by Gary Elden, currently SThree Group chief strategy officer. Clements will effect a progressive transition of his responsibilities to Elden over the next eleven months to ensure an orderly handover.

Elden joined SThree board in 2008 and has over twenty two years' service with the Group. He is appointed as deputy CEO with immediate effect.

According to Sthree, Clements' retirement is part of a managed succession process, which will also see the appointment to the Group Board of Steve Quinn, currently Group managing director Benelux & Middle East, who will join the Board as chief operating officer, and Justin Hughes, who will retain his responsibilities as Group managing director Asia Pacific in a new Board-level role, reflecting the strategic significance of this region. Both appointments will be made with effect from June 1, 2012.

The company further stated that it continues to trade in line with expectations.

Rare commodities are worth more than good is a Chinese adage. And more so when it is in the sought-after drug space. Rare and ultra-rare diseases, also called orphan and ultra-orphan diseases, as the names imply, affect very small numbers of patients. So why the clamor? Shares of steel giant ArcelorMittal were losing around 4 percent in the early morning trading in Amsterdam after the company reported sharp decline in first-quarter EBITDA, a key earnings metric, as sales were weak with lower prices and production. Net loss, however, narrowed from last year. The company also confirmed its forecast for annual EBITDA, which is lower than last year. As the din settles down on a dismal quarter at one of the world's exciting tech company, it is time to sit back and take stock of what went wrong and will the wrong be righted in the near term?
