  • Mr Jimmy McQueen will retire as chief executive officer, executive director and chairman of the executive committee but will remain on the board in a non-executive capacity; and
  • Mr Hennie van der Merwe, previously managing director of Trencor from 2003 to 2011 and currently a part-time executive director, will be appointed as chief executive officer and chairman of the executive committee in the place of Mr McQueen.

The above changes are subject to Mr McQueen and Mr Van der Merwe, both of whom retire by rotation at the AGM, being re-elected as directors.  They are both available and offer themselves for re-election.

The board extends its appreciation to Mr McQueen for his dedication and hard work over the past 41 years with Trencor, during which he was an integral part of the senior management team that led Trencor to many successes. The board wishes him well in his deserved retirement.
