Seven Group this week confirmed timings for the company’s transition on the appointment of the new managing director and chief executive officer.
On 13 April 2015, Seven Group announced that Don Voelte had informed the board of his decision to retire and as a result the board appointed chief operating officer Ryan Stokes (pictured) as incoming managing director and chief executive officer.
Ryan Stokes will now assume new role from 1 July 2015.
Kerry Stokes, executive chairman of Seven Group, said: “Don and Ryan have worked closely and collaboratively together over the past two years. It has been a particularly smooth transition since Don’s announcement of his intention to retire, and as a result both Don and the board believe the time is right to bring forward this transition to 30 June.”
