The $188 million-revenue Project Management Institute said Oct. 22 it has retained Heidrick & Struggles to search for a new CEO to replace Mark Langley.

Newtown Square, Pa.-based PMI announced last month that Langley would retire by Nov. 30.

PMI said in its statement that the new CEO would implement a new strategic plan and lead a digital transformation. Internal and external candidates will be considered.

“The dynamic leader shall oversee the implementation of a new strategic plan and guide the organization toward a future designed to help thousands of project professionals around the world accelerate their careers and make ideas a reality,” the group said.
