Dan Allen, Serco Inc.’s chairman and CEO, has announced his plan to retire by the middle of this year.

The company, owned by the British-based Serco Group plc, is looking at both internal and external candidate to replace Allen.

“Dan Allen has worked tirelessly on behalf of Serco during a critical transition period of the company,” said Rupert Soames, Serco Group CEO.

He credited Allen with developing a strong leadership team for the U.S business.

“Working with such a dedicated management team and workforce has been an honor and a great experience for me both professionally and personally,” Allen said. “Because of that, this decision was not easy for me to make.”

The U.S. business that Allen led has about $1 billion in annual revenue and 9,000 employees. Overall, Serco Group has $5 billion in revenue.

Allen joined Serco in 2013. He replaced Ed Casey, who is the chief operating officer for Serco Group.
