EMIS Group's Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Sean Riddell, is retiring from his full-time role to focus on family commitments.

The supplier of clinical software and related services to GP practices and other healthcare practitioners said Chief Administrative Officer, Chris Spencer, will work as chief executive on an interim basis.

"I am enormously proud of how EMIS has grown and evolved since I joined in 1989," Riddell said.

"After 23 years with the business I have decided that it is right for me to step back from my full time role and let others take the business to the next level. The future development of EMIS will be led by a talented executive management team which has been expanded and strengthened in recent years."

Riddell will remain on the board as a non-executive director when he formally steps down as CEO on March 21st to ensure a smooth transition of responsibilities and retention of his sector experience.

The board has started a recruitment process to select a permanent successor.

"Sean has made an immense contribution to EMIS's success over more than two decades, notably since flotation in April 2010 when Sean has been the public face of EMIS," said Chairman Mike O'Leary.

"Having led the company for over 12 years, Sean wishes to devote more time to his family commitments and we have therefore agreed that it is an appropriate juncture for him to step down as CEO, whilst remaining active for a period in a non-executive role."
