Former ASGN CEO now steps down from board; firm cites college admissions scandal

May 28, 2019

ASGN Inc. (NYSE: ASGN) announced today that Peter Dameris is resigning as director of the company. ASGN previously announced that Dameris would step down from his role as CEO effective April 30. However, in a filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission on Friday, the company reported that Dameris was a target in the college admission investigation.

“The company has been informed that Mr. Dameris’ resignation was the subject of negotiations between his counsel and the United States Attorney’s Office in Boston, Massachusetts, which has been investigating Mr. Dameris as a target in connection with the college admissions investigation,” according to the filing.

It had been announced in April that Dameris was stepping down from the CEO role but would remain on the board of the Calabasas, California-based company. That announcement indicated he was stepping down from the CEO role because his youngest son had been battling acute myeloid leukemia for more than a year and required additional treatment.

Shares in ASGN closed at $51.20 on Tuesday, down 5.7% from Friday's close of $54.30.

The stock information in this story has been corrected.

Um, ASGN stock is currently at $51.83, so not sure how you came to the conclusion that it was down TO $2.10. Maybe 3.87% = $2.10, but the way you stated it is very inaccurate.
