London-based Telecom Plus announced changes to its boardroom, citing the need to redress “the historical imbalance in the proportion of independent non-executive directors.”
Effective July 2022, the following changes will take place:
- Charles Wigoder will become Non-Executive Chairman
- Melvin Lawson will retire from the Board
- Julian Schild will retire from the Board
“Following 23 years in a full-time leadership role at Telecom Plus, I am delighted to be handing over all executive responsibilities to Andrew and Stuart as co-CEOs, whilst remaining as Chairman of a business which has been, and will remain, an important part of my life,” said Chairman Charles Wigoder. “I am confident their combined strength and experience will enable the business to capitalize on the recent paradigm shift we have seen in the energy markets, and take full advantage of the exciting growth opportunities ahead. Melvin and Julian have each made significant contributions to the success of the business over the past decade and more, and will leave with our sincere thanks.”
These changes follow the appointment of Stuart Burnett as co-CEO in November of 2021.
