The Board of Halma announces that Kevin Thompson, group finance director, has indicated his intention to retire during 2018.
The Board will commence a search shortly and an announcement will be made in due course. Once a successor has been appointed, Kevin will step down from the Board and will remain with the Group until an orderly handover has been completed.
Paul Walker, Chairman, commented: “I would like to thank Kevin for the tremendous contribution he has made to Halma’s success since joining the business 30 years ago. Kevin became the Group Finance Director and member of the Halma plc Board in 1998 and, since then, Halma has more than quadrupled its revenue and profit to become a truly global business. Kevin has built a strong team in all our major regions to underpin this continued growth and I appreciate his diligence and support helping the Board to ensure a smooth succession over the next year or so.”
