Ed Casey, acting CEO of Serco Group since October, has been appointed chief operating officer for the U.K.-based government services contractor as Rupert Soames takes chief executive post on a permanent basis Wednesday.

Casey will continue to serve on the board of directors and the board will consider resolutions regarding both Casey’s and Soames’ appointments to the board at the company’s annual general meeting on May 8, Serco said Tuesday.

Casey previously led the company’s North American arm — Serco Inc. — for seven years, a period that saw the business grow to nearly 9, 000 people and $1.2 billion in revenue.

Executive Mosaic’s staff elected Casey to the Wash100, a group of government contracting executives recognized for vision and achievement at the intersection of the public and private sectors.

Serco also announced that Andrew Jenner, chief financial officer since 2002, will leave the company and step down from the board of directors once the company appoints his successor.

Jenner joined the company in 1996 and took a corporate finance director role in 1999.
