Farewell to LINX Chairman, Murray Steele
It is with great sadness we advise you of Murray Steele’s resignation as independent chairman of LINX. Whilst he took a keen interest in the business, Murray’s role was a non-executive one; John Souter and his executive team will ensure packets continue to flow and that the business is unaffected.
Murray was given a formal farewell at LINX HQ in March with the presentation by CEO John Souter of a goodbye gift from all the staff.
Simon Woodhead has been confirmed as the newly elected chairman of the Board (and previously vice-chairman), who picks up Murray’s commitments from this point forwards. As announced at LINX104, the Board have begun the search for a replacement independent chairman.
