This news is a bit of a shocker. Nadir Mohamed, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rogers, has decided to retire from the company effective January 2014. Mohamed took on this role on March 30th, 2009 and there was no specific reason in the press release for his departure, only that he’s ensured that “the company’s in great shape and it’s time to start the transition to the next generation of leadership. Over the next year I look forward to delivering strong results and to ensuring a seamless transition.” Rogers Board of Directors will be appointing a search firm to find a new President and CEO, but stated that both Edward Rogers or Melinda Rogers will not be gunning for the position.
Mohamed said “the Company has a seasoned executive team, the best asset mix in North America, the most advanced networks and the best platform to lead and drive the next wave of growth. The company’s in great shape and it’s time to start the transition to the next generation of leadership.”
