Paul Fullagar, who joined the Board in May 2004, is quoted as saying, "Roger is an outstanding businessman who has made a significant contribution to the industry and to the success of Financial Objects. I am honoured to take over from Roger, and look forward to building on his hard work."
Stewart Foster will also be leaving the Board on 31 May. Paul Fullagar is quoted as saying, "Stewart has been with the company for almost ten years, during which time he has played an important role in growing the business and in establishing the company's highly successful development centre in India. We wish him well in the future."
Trading continues in line with expectations and the Board retains the positive outlook it expressed at the Preliminary results in March and subsequently at the AGM.
