The chief executive of UK recruitment group Kellan, Ross Eades, has stepped down from his post with immediate effect. In a message to shareholders this morning, the company said that Mr Eades will remain with the company as non-executive director. This comes after ex-Adecco CEO John Bowmer left the firm as non-executive director in November last year.
Mr Eades said: “The business is well placed to grow in its chosen markets and I look forward to continuing to play my part in the Group's future as a non-executive director and shareholder.” He joined Kellan in 2009, having previously worked as CEO at IT recruiter InterQuest.
The firm did not announce a replacement for Mr Eades, but said it would make a further statement “in due course.”
Tony Reeves, Kellan’s non-executive chairman, will meanwhile become executive chairman and be responsible for the day-to-day running of the group. Mr Reeves has over 45 years' experience in the staffing industry, most recently as chairman and chief executive officer of hotgroup plc from 2002 until its acquisition by Trinity Mirror Group plc in September 2005. Before that he was chairman and chief executive officer of the Delphi Group Plc until its acquisition by Adecco in 1998.
In September, Kellan reported lower sales figures in the first half of the year as trading conditions hampered growth in the six months to June.
