Rubin to Head Pentland USA

It’s all in the family at Pentland Group Plc.

Carrie Rubin, a director at the London-based firm who is the daughter of Chairman Stephen Rubin, has assumed the role of president of Pentland USA. Sonny Shar, the 20-year company veteran who had been heading up the American business, will remain on board as non-executive chairman. Tom Siegel has been promoted to COO from CFO.

“I am delighted to take on the position of president of Pentland USA and look forward to continuing the great relationships that Sonny has built during his [more than two decades] with our company,” said Rubin, who will be in Las Vegas with Shar this week. “His are big shoes to fill.”

Shar will continue to play a role at the company. “I’m still here, and life goes on,” he said.
