Not about the news, just look into their linkedin profile because i am bored. - most of us people has their professional/employ history there, and you know what, i also found some famous names there too ... If you are curious too, you will need to have an account first, then do the search if you don't know how to find them... and normally, the u.s. people will do have their profile updated all the time.

Also have a wild guess, the new ceo probably will be the one from current director list, but this is just my wild guess without any source. Why ? This interim used to be just a director ...
