Craig Glynn's knowledge and skills will be a significant benefit to the Company. As Vycon moves forward, Craig's expertise and input will prove invaluable, especially as our sales traction gains pace and the Company moves to its next stage of development. We are delighted to have attracted a Chief Financial Officer of such caliber. I would also like to thank Dennis Whittler for his contribution and hard work, especially in bringing the Company to a successful listing in London on AIM. We wish him well in the future.'
