Kentech announces that as a result of conflicting work pressures, David Greer will be departing from the Board as the Chairman of Kentech Corporate Holdings. David joined the Kentech board as Chairman in summer 2014 and he has participated extensively in both the development of the Board and the company during his tenure. He has been able to bring his broad industry knowledge and expertise into the Board discussion in addition to providing both the challenge and support that one can expect within the Board. David’s workload and travel commitments linked to his executive role in Serco means that he can no longer devote the time and energy required to fulfill the role as Chairman of Kentech and he has expressed his regret at having to leave the Company at this exciting stage of its evolution and wishes the company every success going forward.
Sarah Kent, Kentech’s CEO, commented: “On behalf of all of the employees, management, Board and shareholders, I would like to thank David for his considerable contribution to the company over the past number of years. I know that he will be missed and I wish him every continued success in his career.”
Malcolm Fallen has been appointed to assume the position of Chairman. Malcolm has been a Kentech Board member since August 2015 and has a wealth of both operational and Board experience. Operating as the CEO of KCOM Group (a UK-based IT and Telecommunications services business), CFO of Eircom in Ireland and Finance Director for BT Consumer Division, he then progressed into a number of Board and investment roles across a range of industries, including until recently five years as Chairman of a Private Equity owned global manufacturing business. Malcolm has a strong pragmatic business acumen but, he has also demonstrated that he understands the importance of the Kentech people and teamwork.
Sarah Kent commented: “I know that he will be a positive influence on the company and build on the strong foundations that have been established and I very much look forward to working with him in his new role.”
