A longstanding non-executive Director will retire from Qube Holdings later this month.
Ross Burney – who has been a Director since Qube’s incorporation in 2011 – will retire effective 22 February 2024.
Burney also served as a member of the investment advisory committee that undertook the preparatory work leading to Qube’s successful corporatisation.
“On behalf of Qube’s Board of Directors and management, I thank Ross for his significant contribution to the establishment, strategic direction and growth of Qube over his significant period of service,” said Qube Chairman, Allan Davies.
“Ross’ input at both Board and committee level has been highly valued and appreciated.
“Ross’ retirement is part of Qube’s continued focus on board succession and renewal which also saw the appointment of Ms Jill Hoffmann to the board in December and the appointment of Mr James Fazzino, who will join the board later this month.
“With these changes, I am also pleased to announce that effective today, Jill has been appointed as a member of both the Nomination and Remuneration Committee and the Audit & Risk Management Committee.
“James will also join the Audit & Risk Management Committee on 22 February 2024 and Mr Sam Kaplan will step down from the Committee on this date. Sam will remain as Deputy Chairman and focus on strategic initiatives that may be considered by Qube.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Sam for his invaluable contribution to the work of the Audit & Risk Management Committee, which he chaired for many years following its inception. Under Sam’s guidance and membership, this Committee has been fundamental to establishing and maintaining Qube’s high standards of corporate governance and financial reporting, as well providing critical guidance to management and the board.”
