Paul Manduca has made an outstanding contribution during his tenure as Chairman which, with the help of the Board, I hope to build on."


Paul Manduca said "I am delighted that Angus has agreed to join the Board in October and succeed me as Chairman on 1 January 2024. He is a first-class choice to be the next Chairman and I wish both him and the Company the very best for the future."
