G4S boss quits
Chief executive Nick Buckles, who was instrumental in creating the G4S business through the merger of Securicor and the security businesses of Group 4 Falck in 2004, stands down.He is to retire from the company and will be replaced on June 1 by Ashley Almanza, who has held senior roles at oil and gas group BG Group.
G4S's Olympics failure saw Mr Buckles appear before MPs, during which he admitted it was a "humiliating shambles for the company." Extra military personnel had to be called in to fill the gap left by G4S's failure to supply enough staff for the £284m contract for the Games, held in London last year.
