Steven Goodbarn, the chief financial officer of Janus Capital Corporation of Denver, resigned Sept. 22, according to Jane Ingalls, a company spokesperson.

Goodbarn announced his resignation and left the firm the same day, saying he wanted to take time off and pursue other opportunities, Ingalls said. Kansas City Southern's decision to spin off Janus as part of Stilwell Financial was not a factor in his decision to leave and both sides are parting on good terms, she said.
