Following five years with the Group, Jeremy Simpson, Chief Financial Officer, will be leaving the Group following a short handover period.
Commenting on Jeremy Simpsons' departure, Bob Holt, Executive Chairman, said: "Jeremy played a significant role in the growth of the Group over the last five years and its flotation on the stock market.

An announcement will be made soon regarding his replacement."
