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.
