The Board is also pleased to announce that Jeremy Osler's appointment as an Executive Director of the Company, has also received regulatory approval from the Financial Conduct Authority. Jeremy will join the Board immediately following the Company's Annual General Meeting on 12 May 2021.


Commenting on the Board changes, Lisa Gordon Non-Executive Chairman said:


"On behalf of the Board I would like to pay tribute to Jim Durkin, who has been central to the creation and development of Cenkos over the past 16 years.  I have hugely enjoyed working with Jim over the last 12 months on the blueprint for Cenkos' ongoing success and we wish him well in his forthcoming retirement.


The appointment of Julian Morse as Chief Executive Officer and wider changes to the senior management team across the Firm, including the appointment of Jeremy Osler to the Board as Executive Director, creates a strong team to lead and take the business forward."
