  • CEO says he “agreed with the Board that now is the right moment to hand over to a new leader”.
  • Chairman van Boxmeer now imposing himself on board and C-Suite, ahead of next FY, but still needs to demonstrate grasp of challenges and convince investors.
  • CFO Margherita Della Valle to fill in while Group conducts search for replacement.
