Non-Executive Director Change


Tekmar Group (AIM: TGP), a leading provider of technology and services for the global offshore energy markets, is pleased to announce the appointment of David Wilkinson as a new independent Non-executive Director. David is replacing Chris Gill, who has notified the Board of his intention to stand down having served as a Non-executive Director and Chair of the Audit Committee since the IPO of the Company.  The effective date of Chris' resignation is today, with David assuming the roles of Chair of the Audit Committee and member of the Remuneration Committee and Nomination Committee.


David is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants having spent over 40 years with Deloitte including approximately 30 years as Partner. His responsibilities as Partner covered both corporate finance advisory and audit for large private companies and PLCs across a diverse range of industries, including the technology, manufacturing and engineering sectors. Following retirement from Deloitte in 2015, David has assumed a portfolio of non-executive director roles, including supporting manufacturing and engineering businesses to accelerate growth through managing change and realising the value of technology and IP led products and services.


Julian Brown, Chairman of Tekmar said, "On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Chris for his dedicated service to the Company and the Board. Tekmar has benefitted enormously from the depth and breadth of his counsel through and since the IPO and we wish him the very best for the future. We are delighted to welcome David to Tekmar. He brings highly complementary skills, experience and expertise to the Board, not least his audit expertise, but also his broader business and leadership experience, and he will bring valuable perspective and advice to support Tekmar in delivering on the strategic plan."
