Depa PLC (“Depa”), the leading global interior solutions group, announces the resignation of the following non-executive directors from its board: Mr Mohamed Al Mehairi, Mr Saeed Al Mehairbi and Mr Gerard Hutchinson.

Following these resignations, Mr Abdulla Al Mazrui has been elected chairman of the board.

The board will elect the members of its respective committees and communicate the composition of these committees to the market in due course.

Mr Abdullah Al Mazrui, Chairman, commented:

“The changes to the group’s board track the cost saving measures taken by the business globally to date, and its plans to continue to take cost out of the business. The group is seeking to make its businesses leaner and more agile, and this change to the board size and composition complements this.

“On behalf of Depa, the remaining board members and myself personally, I would like thank all of those resigning directors. They have all contributed much value to Depa during their respective tenures. Their input has assisted the group to put in place its current transformation plan to mitigate the effects of the covid pandemic and the impact thereof on the construction sector in the Middle East, Asia and more globally.”
