In anticipation of and preparatory to assuming his new role, Mr. Vervelde submitted a letter of resignation to the Board of Directors (“the Board”) at the Board Meeting held on the 3rd of May, 2017. The Board accepted the resignation which will take effect on the 16th of June 2017 and has informed The Nigerian Stock Exchange of the development.

Having previously served on the Board as a Non-Executive Director, Mr. Vervelde re-joined the Board on the 1st of August, 2010 as Managing Director/CEO and has successfully managed the affairs of the Company ever since. The Company has recorded several laudable milestones with Mr. Vervelde at the helm of affairs including the expansion of its operations through the acquisition of additional Breweries.
