Thomas Manning

Thomas “Tom” Manning, formerly lead director at Dun & Bradstreet, has been named chairman of the board and interim CEO of the Short Hills, New Jersey-based commercial information provider.

Manning’s appointment comes after Dun & Bradstreet CEO and Board Chairman Robert Carrigan decided to step down from his roles, the company said Monday.

The board’s nominating and governance committee will work with an executive search company to find a permanent CEO.

“We are pleased to have a leader of Tom’s caliber and experience to step in as interim CEO,” said James Fernandez, new lead director at Dun & Bradstreet.

“The board will continue to support the company, and lend our expertise to the organization and Tom during this transition period as we conduct our search for a permanent successor,” Fernandez added.

Manning has been chairman of the firm’s nominating and governance committee since 2016 and also serves as a member of the board’s audit and innovation and technology panels.

Prior to Dun & Bradstreet, he previously held CEO roles at Capgemini Asia, EY’s consulting business in Asia and Cerberus Capital Management’s Asian arm.

He currently sits on the boards of Clear Media and CommScope Holding Co. and is a lecturer in law at the University of Chicago Law School.

Manning previously served as a director at iSoftStone, Bank of Communications, Gome Electrical Appliances and Asiainfo-Linkage.
