USG boss left over ‘lack of chemistry’

Ron Icke, who suddenly resigned as CEO of staffing agency USG People on Friday, left because of a ‘lack of chemistry’ between himself and the company, financial head Rob Zandbergen says in Monday’s Financieele Dagblad.

Zandbergen told the paper Icke’s departure was not for strategic or financial reasons and was ‘absolutely not’ connected to the new deal made between USG and its banks.
In a statement on Friday, USG People said ‘differences in opinion about the strategy’ were behind Icke’s decision to quit.
USG, which had debts totalling €352m in March, recently raised €50m selling some of its accounts to a factoring company.
