Roger Fordyce is Hudson Group’s new CEO

Roger Fordyce has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of Hudson Group, effective January 8, 2019.

He succeeds Joseph DiDomizio, who is leaving the company to pursue other interests.

Fordyce served as an Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Hudson Group until his appointment as Chief Executive Officer. He joined Hudson Group 30 years ago.

As Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, he was responsible for the company’s day-to-day management.

In a press release, Hudson Group said: “The company’s Board of Directors would like to thank Mr Joseph DiDomizio for his many contributions to the Hudson Group’s development over the years. Mr DiDomizio was a key executive in expanding the footprint of the company and successfully led Hudson Group to become a listed company on the New York Stock Exchange. The Board wishes Mr DiDomizio all the best in his future endeavors.”

DiDomizio will also leave the Board of Directors of the company, so Hudson also announced the Notice of a Proposed Shareholder Written Resolution which, if passed by the company’s shareholders, will appoint Fordyce to succeed DiDomizio as a Class III Director of the company until its 2021 annual meeting or until his office shall otherwise be vacated pursuant to the company’s bye-laws.

The Proposed Shareholder Written Resolution will be passed when it is signed by registered shareholders who hold a simple majority of the total voting rights of all issued and outstanding shares of the company, provided such majority includes at least one shareholder holding Class B common shares.
