Board Change


Ultra Electronics plc announces that John Hirst, Non-Executive Director and Chair of the Audit Committee, has notified the Company of his intention to step down from the Board due to his increasing non-Ultra commitments and his recent appointment as Chair of the British Standards Institution.


The search for a replacement Director has now commenced. John will retire as a member of the Remuneration Committee after the 2019 Annual General Meeting, but will remain on the Board and Chair of the Audit Committee until a replacement has been found.  


Commenting on the change, Tony Rice, Chairman, said on behalf of the Board: "We would like to thank John for his input since joining in 2015.  John has brought great experience to the Board and we wish him well for the future."
