Automation and management solutions provider, Clarity OSS, will be without a chief executive officer (CEO) for more than three months as Jon Newbery prepares for surgery.
Newbery will be temporarily stepping down from his role within the next few weeks and is expected to remain on recuperative leave for about 12 weeks following his procedure.
Clarity chief financial officer (CFO), Andrew Wrigglesworth, will serve as CEO in the interim, while company chairman, Ian Campbell, will assume a temporary executive position and take on some of Newbery’s responsibilities.
Campbell, who was Clarity’s CEO prior to Newbery’s appointment and has since remained closely involved with the company, said he is confident that in partnership with Wrigglesworth, Clarity’s operations will be manageable.
Clarity’s leadership took a hit on January 25 as Tony Garcia stepped down from his role as executive director, and prepares to quit as chief operating officer (COO) on February 28.
Garcia will continue to provide the company with consultancy services, but ended his four-year stint with the company to pursue “various opportunities” according to a statement.
