Pearson Chief Financial Officer Coram Williams to Depart

Jan 17, 2020

Less than a month after its CEO John Fallon announced plans to retire, another Pearson executive is also heading for the exits.

Coram Williams, its chief financial officer since 2015, is joining Adecco Group, a Swiss conglomerate that provides staffing, recruitment and other human resource services. That move will happen “mid-year,” according to an announcement from the company. In 2018, Adecco acquired General Assembly, a New York-based provider of bootcamps for coding and other technology skills, for $412.5 million.

According to The Evening Standard, Williams was “viewed by many as next in line” to succeed Fallon. He has been with Pearson since 2002.

Sally Johnson will take over as chief financial officer, according to a statement from Pearson.
