During the year, as part of the ongoing refreshment of the Board, Sir CK Chow joined the Board. We are delighted to have the contribution of Sir CK’s experience and insight. Bobby Godsell retired from the Board at the AGM after nine years of service. We have benefited greatly from his input and advice over the years and wish him well.
At the end of 2008, Tony Redman, our technical director, retired after 38 years of Group service. Although not a director of the Company, Tony was a regular attendee at the Board and his advice on technical matters which are so vital to the success of the Company has been invaluable and the Board wishes him well for the future.
Sir Mark Moody-Stuart
