SThree plc has today announced the resignation of CEO, Gary Elden, OBE.

Gary has been with the business for 28 years, the last six of which he was CEO. He has led the business through a period of growth and change, which has culminated with the successful completion of a massive restructure of the company’s support functions.

Having dedicated himself to the business for almost three decades, Gary is now going to take some time for himself and his young family.

Gary Elden said: “It’s the right time for me to move on and for the Company to find the appropriate person to lead this business through the next phase of its growth and development. They will be taking charge of a business that knows exactly what it wants to become and how it intends to get there and with an energetic group of people who want to make a difference. “

SThree are extremely grateful to Gary for the hard work, commitment and passion he has brought to the business. We wish him and his family all the best for the future.

Chairman of the Board, James Bilefield commented: “On behalf of the Board I would like to thank Gary for his unswerving commitment over the last three decades. During his tenure as CEO, SThree has more than doubled its profitability and has scaled significantly in size and scope around the world, becoming a leading player in the STEM recruitment market. Gary will leave SThree with a strong and experienced leadership team focused on delivering SThree’s strategic priorities, and we have a clear and rigorous process in place to ensure a smooth transition to his successor.”
