Dennis Millard announced his departure as Cookson revealed that its annual pre-tax profits before execeptionals had tripled from £32.6m to 393.1m due to strong demand and a cost-cutting exercise.

Millard said he will stay on until a replacement has been found, after which he plans to surf for a few months before looking for new business challenges.

‘My time as Cookson’s finance director has been hugely fulfilling,’ said Millard. ‘However, after more than nine years, and with the recent strategic review and refinancing complete, I feel that this is the right time to move on.’
