Hurn tops GEC list
Jon Mainwaring Smiths Industries’ chairman, Sir Roger Hurn, is the favourite to replace Lord Prior as chairman of GEC next year, according to reports. Hurn became chief executive of Smiths in 1981, and has been credited with transforming the business into one of the UK’s most successful industrial groups, with a listing on the FTSE100 index. Hurn has been thought to be keeping his options open by not accepting offers of other appointments recently made to him. Last year he cut his workload at Smiths by separating the jobs of chief executive and chairman.
