Selig Group has named Adam Sheridan president, effective June 1.
The previous resident and CEO, Steve Cassidy, will step away from day-to-day activities as company president, while retaining the role of CEO—positions that he has held for 19 years.
Sheridan’s appointment is part of a managed executive transition coordinated by Cassidy and Bill Crown, Selig’s board chairman, over the past few years. Cassidy will continue to support the company’s growth and key strategic projects and remain on the board, the company says in a news release.
Sheridan joined Selig in 2015 as an adviser to the board and has held the roles of Selig’s vice president of corporate development, and strategy and executive vice president / general manager, North America.
Prior to Selig, he was a senior member of CC Industries’ corporate development team. He is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin and the University of Chicago School of Business.
