Byotrol plc ("Byotrol" or the "Company")

Directorate and Senior Management Changes


The Board of Byotrol announces changes to the Board of Directors and senior management positions within the Company.

Nic Hellyer, our part-time CFO since May 2019, has stated his intention to resign from the Company to pursue other interests.  Byotrol is now in advanced discussions to replace him with a full-time CFO to be based in our Chester headquarters.  Nic has agreed to stay on to manage the transition until the end of December.

Rick Hayman, head of Byotrol's Professional division and Managing Director of Medimark Scientific Limited, which Byotrol formally acquired in January 2020, has now left Byotrol, but remains a supportive shareholder with a continued interest in the Company's future.  Rick has been replaced by Mark Kyte, formerly a senior sales and marketing professional at Diversey and at Gojo Industries, two of the leading companies worldwide in our core areas of business.


We are also pleased to announce the hiring of James Milnes as a senior business development professional.  James was previously UK MD of Zoono Holdings Ltd and in that role launched and led the team responsible for building Zoono's long-lasting antimicrobial business in the UK and Europe. 

Finally, we have restructured our technical team in readiness for the next stage of growth and have now promoted Dr Chris Plummer, previously head of microbiology at Byotrol, to Head of Technology.


David Traynor, Chief Executive of Byotrol, said:


We thank Nic and Rick for their contributions to Byotrol and we wish them every success in the future.

The Byotrol board has been very pleased with Dr Chris Plummer's excellent work to date in our technical team and his promotion to Head of Technology is very well deserved.  We are also delighted to welcome Mark Kyte and James Milnes into the business and look forward to their contribution to our growth. We are very pleased to be attracting such seasoned professionals into Byotrol as we look to build a significantly larger business.
