Dr Ben Greene to step down as Group CEO of EOS
Electro Optic Systems (EOS) today announced a change of leadership, with the Canberra-headquartered technology company’s co-founder and long-time Group CEO, Dr Ben Greene, stepping down from his current position and moving into the newly created role of Head of Innovation. That role will become effective upon the appointment of Dr Greene’s successor.
The Head of Innovation position will ensure that Dr Greene’s much-valued contributions to the company continue in a capacity that best suits his wishes and EOS’ future requirements.
Peter Leahy, AC, Chair of EOS, said, “Dr Greene’s resignation as CEO comes after several decades of committed service and leadership to EOS as its founder and leader.
