Reader's Digest CEO steps down

Published on .

Reader's Digest Association said Chairman and CEO James Schadt resigned. No reason was given. A committee of independent investors will choose his successor; in the meantime, former Chairman-CEO George Grune returns as chairman-CEO. A month ago, Reader's Digest announced its dividends had been halved and forecast disappointing earnings for the fiscal year ending June 30.
