Pearson director resigns

The first woman to head a FTSE 100 company, Dame Marjorie Scardino, has announced that she will step down as chief executive of publishing firm Pearson at the end of 2012, after 16 years at the helm. She will be replaced by John Fallon, who is currently head of Pearson’s International Education division.

A government commissioned review has recommended a minimum target of 25% female representation on the boards of FTSE 100 companies by 2015, so this news will not be welcomed by advocates of the proposals.
