GW Management Change (though not really)

Postby Primarch on Fri Jan 18, 2013 1:04 pm

It looks like GW is switching things up with their senior management.

"GAMES WORKSHOP GROUP PLC

Games Workshop Group announces a change in Senior Management

For the past five years Games Workshop has had the best CEO it has ever had. Under Mark Wells’ leadership we have become better organised, clearer thinking and commercially more robust.

The needs of the business over the last few years has meant there has been a gradual overlapping of the roles of Chairman and CEO. Recently this has become so complete that, after discussions together, Mark and Tom have agreed that the CEO’s role, as it stands, is redundant.

Tom will incorporate the role of Acting CEO into his position as Chairman and, whilst it will undoubtedly come as something of a surprise, Mark has decided to leave the business.

Mark is looking forward to planning his next challenge and he does so with our support, best wishes and heartfelt thanks.

These changes take immediate effect."

Brutal. While the guy doesn't get any of my sympathies, it seems rather ruthless. Undoubtedly the guy has played a part in making GW a more profitable and established corporation (not to the love of gamers). I'm sure this took some acumen as a business man. Now that this has been done, they release him.
Tom will incorporate the role of Acting CEO into his position as Chairman and, whilst it will undoubtedly come as something of a surprise, Mark has decided to leave the business.

What part of stripping a man of being an executive and sending him back to subordinate position (if he was offered anything), makes one surprised he picks up and leaves?
