On December 9, 2022, the Board of Directors (the "Board") of Huron Consulting Group Inc. ("Huron" or the "Company") appointed James H. Roth as Vice Chairman of the Board and elected C. Mark Hussey as Chief Executive Officer and a Class I director on the Board, all effective January 1, 2023. Mr. Roth will continue as a Class I director of Huron and Mr. Hussey will serve on the Board until the May 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders of Huron, at which time he will stand for re-election.
These elections were made in contemplation of the Company's previous announcement that Mr. Roth will retire from his role as Chief Executive Officer of the Company on December 31, 2022 and will continue in a non-executive capacity serving clients across industries and enhancing Huron's market presence, among other activities. Mr. Hussey was designated by the Board to serve as the President and Chief Executive Officer, effective January 1, 2023, succeeding Mr. Roth in his role.
Mr. Hussey, age 62, has served as the Company's President since February 2019 and the Company's Chief Operating Officer since February 2014. While Chief Operating Officer, he also led Huron's healthcare business as the interim leader from January 2017 until February 2019. Mr. Hussey served as the Company's Chief Financial Officer from July 2011 until January 2017, and as Treasurer from July 2011 until February 2016. Prior to joining Huron, from 2002 to 2011, he served as Chief Financial Officer at Crosscom National, LLC, a privately held professional IT services organization deploying and servicing in-store technology solutions for large, national retailers. In that role, he was responsible for all finance and administrative functions for the company. Prior to that, from 2000 until 2002, he served as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for North America at Information Resources, Inc. During his career, Mr. Hussey has held senior finance, accounting and investor relations positions at companies such as EZLinks Golf Inc., Dominick's Finer Foods Inc. and the Quaker Oats Company.
The Company will file an amendment to this Current Report on Form 8-K upon the finalization of Mr. Roth and Mr. Hussey's Senior Management Agreements to provide a description of the material terms of the compensation arrangements. There are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Hussey and any other persons pursuant to which he was elected as an officer or director.
There is no family relationship existing between Mr. Hussey and any executive officer or director of the Company. There have been no transactions, and no transactions are currently proposed, in which the Company was or is to be a participant and in which Mr. Hussey or any member of his immediate family had or will have an interest.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
