Further to the announcement released on SENS on 15 February 2019, wherein it was stated, inter alia, that EOH would shortly be announcing changes to the board of directors ("Board") to more closely align the Board with King IV, EOH Holdings Limited has announced the following changes to the Board:
- In accordance with King IV, a former CEO should not serve as chairman of the board until a three-year cooling off period has been observed. Accordingly, Mr Asher Bohbot, founder, non-executive chairman and CEO for 19 years, will be resigning from the Board effective 28 February 2019.
Mr. Bohbot will, on an advisory basis, assist the Group until 31 July 2019 in the implementation of the strategy shared with the market recently.
Mr. Bohbot commented "I have confidence in EOH?s management and believe that the new strategy, which is in advanced stages of implementation, will be beneficial to all our stakeholders."
