2nd Top Exec Resigns from Janus
DENVER (AP) _ A second high-profile executive has resigned from mutual fund giant Janus in less than two months.
Steven Goodbarn, chief financial officer, is the latest person to leave the Denver-based company, according to Securities and Exchange Commission documents filed Monday. His departure comes on the heels of Janus chief investment officer Jim Craig’s decision in August to leave the firm to start a charitable foundation with his wife.
Eric Montag, a Janus vice president and director of planning and analysis, said Goodbarn’s resignation was unrelated to Craig’s departure.
″(Goodbarn is) just pursuing his own personal goals after being around here for about eight years,″ said Montag.
Goodbarn, 43, joined Janus in April 1992. He oversaw the company’s facilities as well as financial accounting and equity trading.
Goodbarn’s last day with the company was Friday, Janus spokeswoman Shelley Peterson said. He had told company officials he wanted to pursue other interests but he did not elaborate, she said.
Goodbarn’s telephone number is unlisted and he could not be reached for comment.
