Thierry Edmond Déau and Thomas Josef Maier step down
Board members Thierry Edmond Déau and Thomas Josef Maier have stepped down as independent non-executive directors. Both having decided not to stand for re-election at the next annual general meeting, they agreed to step down early to allow new board members to join as soon as practically possible.
Additional director to be named
The process of appointing an additional non-executive director, with experience in a UK plc context, is under way.
GPH Chairman and Cofounder Mehmet Kutman thanked Déau and Maier for their service and insight during the company’s early years as a UK plc.
‘I am delighted to welcome Andy Stuart to the board,’ Kutman added. ‘His vast experience of the cruise industry over a period of more than 30 years makes him a valuable addition to the team. We look forward to benefiting from his insights as we continue the expansion of our cruise port business.’
