Alex commented;

“Sincere thanks to all who voted for me. I feel fortunate and grateful to be re-elected. For the next three years, I will carry on doing what I have been doing; offering thoughtful and cautious input into the LINX Board discussions and decisions.”

The second candidate, who was elected by vote of the LINX members is Cara Mascini, she will join as a Non-Executive Director.
