Rolls-Royce's new CEO has instigated a major restructuring of the company's top team, resulting in the removal of the head of its mini-nukes project. Tom Samson, who led the small modular reactor (SMR) developer, will leave his position with immediate effect, along with the finance boss who is also departing abruptly. This move follows Tufan Erginbilgic's speech to the staff, in which he referred to the FTSE 100 jet engine maker as a "burning platform."
