Mark Thornton, our Interim Group Finance Director, is with us on a fixed-term contract until July. As part of his role with us, Mark has helped us to scope and recruit a new permanent Group Finance Director.

We are looking forward to Gary joining us as part of the team and thank Mark for his significant contribution in his time working with us.
