News from the company front of Games Workshop, even if it is sparse. After 5 years at the helm, Mark Wells is stepping down as CEO of Games Workshop.
Here is the (rather brief) press release from Games Workshop PLC released on January 18, 2013.
Games Workshop announces that after five years of outstanding service Mark Wells is stepping down as CEO. He leaves on good terms and with our very best wishes.
The board will be seeking to appoint a new CEO in due course. In the meantime, our Chairman, Tom Kirby, will be Acting CEO and Chairman.
Essentially, this is happening just a week after the latest dividends have been paid, so I presume it is a move that has been planned for a while.
Games Workshop Group PLC announces that the Board yesterday declared a dividend of 18 pence per share. This will be paid on 9 January 2013 for shareholders on the register at 30 November 2012.
