Dillistone Group announces Board member Giles Fearnley as next Chairman alongside Mike Love stepping to Non-Executive Director

– UK, London –  Dillistone Group Plc (LON: DSG), the supplier of software and services to the recruitment industry, today announced Mike Love will assume the post of Non-Executive Director on 31 December 2019 after 9 years as Chairman, to enable greater time for his other business interests. Giles Fearnley, currently Non-Executive Director, will assume the role of Chairman from this date.

Giles is currently Managing Director Bus for First Group plc. His previous roles included being Chief Executive of Prism Rail Plc and Chairman of both the Association of Train Operating Companies and the Confederation of Passenger Transport.

In addition, Rory Howard and Alistair Milne will leave the business and stand down from the Board on 31 December 2019 and Paul Mather and Simon Warburton will join the Board from 1 January 2020.

Jason Starr, CEO of Dillistone Group Plc commented: “I’d like to place on record our appreciation of the efforts of Mike, Rory and Alistair.

“Mike joined the Group on flotation, initially as a NED, before stepping up to the Chairmanship in 2010. His guiding hand and sage advice have been of huge value to us.

“I’ve worked alongside Rory for more than 20 years and he played a major part in developing us from a business with a handful of staff in a backstreet office in the east end of London, to a global business employing more than 100 staff.

“Alistair has been a driving force behind the restructuring of the business, despite the full knowledge that it would likely lead to his role no longer being required. His commitment to the business, its staff and its clients, and his all-round professionalism during this period has been outstanding.

“Paul Mather and Simon Warburton joined Dillistone through the acquisition of Voyager in 2011 and have been instrumental in designing the new operating model being adopted through the reorganisation.

“Dillistone has grown through acquisition so a step-change in how those previously separate businesses operate was required. This reorganisation has already shown significant benefits and will be for the benefit of all stakeholders. With Simon and Paul stepping up to the main board, and with the reorganisation now largely complete, the Board is very excited about the future.”

Giles Fearnley, added: “I also add my thanks to Mike, Rory and Alistair for their work and contribution over many years with the business. I am very much looking forward to working with the management team who are focused on delivering growth for Dillistone.”
