David Coghlan, Chairman of Synectics, commented: “Nigel Poultney has demonstrated quite exceptional skill, integrity and commitment throughout his lengthy service at Synectics, and has played a substantial role in the Group’s growth and development over that period. Whilst we are sorry that he has now chosen to retire from full-time employment, I am delighted that Nigel has agreed to make himself available on an ongoing part-time basis to provide us with both a seamless transition and continued access to his deep knowledge of our business.
“Since joining the Group, Mike Stilwell has taken on increasingly senior responsibilities within Synectics’ finance department and across all of its operating businesses. On the basis of observing his performance at first hand on a range of important issues, the Board is confident he has all of the necessary capabilities to make a strong contribution to the Group as Finance Director. We are pleased to be able to make this appointment internally in accordance with our succession plan.”
