Rolls Royce plc Key Developments

Rolls Royce plc Announces Changes in CEO, Effective July 2015

Institution of Engineering and Technology Vice President Warren East has been named the new CEO of Rolls-Royce, replacing current chief John Rishton after a year of falling profits. East has served as Rolls-Royce's non-executive director since January last year. Previously, he was the CEO of ARM, between 2001 and 2013. East will take on the responsibility at Rolls-Royce in July 2015 after the retirement of his predecessor Rishton. East will face the difficult task of steering the company through an uneasy period, which has seen the jet-engine maker's profits fall due to the shrinking defence budgets of western countries. Rolls-Royce's business has also suffered from oil price crises, which have affected many of its customers in the gas and marine sector. 57-year-old Rishton is stepping down after 14 years as Rolls-Royce's CEO. He led the firm through a decade of economic growth, which ended last year with the announcement that the firm's profits could fall by up to 13%. Although the company admitted there were concerns among shareholders about the situation, Rishton's decision to retire was said to be completely voluntary.
