James Fisher and Sons plc - Retirement of Chief Executive Officer

The notice he has given ensures there is sufficient time to allow a thorough search process to take place, both internally and externally, in order to allow a smooth transition of responsibilities. 

Malcolm Paul, Chairman of James Fisher, commented: "Nick's track record as Chief Executive speaks for itself. He has overseen strong organic growth, particularly in our Marine Support and Specialist Technical divisions, and successfully completed a number of niche acquisitions. Nick will continue to deliver our consistent strategy during the coming financial year as we manage the transition to a new leadership."

Nick Henry said: "I will be leaving James Fisher next year with a strong and experienced management team in place and in excellent financial and operational shape to take advantage of the many opportunities the Group has for further growth."
