Lighting group Luceco plc has announced that John Barton, the Senior Independent Director, has informed the Board that he will not stand for re-election at the AGM on 4 June 2020 to allow him to ‘devote more time to his other business and wider interests’.
Luceco said that the process to appoint a new Senior Independent Director is at ‘an advanced stage’ and will be announced in due course.
Caroline Brown, currently Non-Executive Director and Chair of the Audit Committee, will serve as Interim Senior Independent Director from the AGM until a new Senior Independent Director joins the Board.
Giles Brand, Chairman, said: “I would like to thank John for his contribution to the Group over the last four years. His experience, wise counsel and sense of humour have been much appreciated and invaluable to the Board and senior management team. We wish him all the best for the future.”
