Williams as finance director.

John Neilson, the current FD, is retiring in May.

wealth of directly relevant experience, built upon a career in financial
management within the international process industry and in particular over the
last ten years at Cermaq. Peter has a track record of achievement throughout his
professional life, including in publicly quoted companies, and we firmly believe
his skill set will complement those of the senior management team.’
