NEW YORK, June 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- S&P Global today announced the resignation of Jack Callahan, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Callahan, who assumed his current role in 2010, will leave the Company in August for a leadership role at one of the world's leading academic institutions.
"Jack has been at the forefront of our transformation from The McGraw-Hill Companies to McGraw Hill Financial and finally to S&P Global," said Doug Peterson, President and Chief Executive Officer, S&P Global.
