New CEO. Yesterday, GEO announced Brian Evans, who has been with the Company for 23 years and has served as the Company’s Chief Financial Officer for 14 years, has been appointed Chief Executive Officer, effective January 1, 2024. Current CEO Jose Gordo is transitioning to an advisor role, by mutual agreement. Given Mr. Evans’ familiarity with GEO and his strong performance as CFO, we believe this is a strong choice for the Company.
Zoley Term. Company founder and Executive Chairman George Zoley will step down as Executive Chairman as of June 30, 2026, the end of his current employment term. Mr. Zoley then will transition into the role as an advisor to the Company, while continuing to serve as the Company’s non-Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors.
