Richard helped grow Iomart from a breakeven, GBP20 million revenue company to a quoted business with over the GBP100 million in revenue and adjusted EBITDA of GBP40 million. Whilst at Iomart, Richard oversaw 19 acquisitions, the full finance function along with the PLC corporate governance functions. Richard's experience and knowledge of the sector and public markets will be invaluable to the Group's future. Richard Logan will become Audit Committee Chairman once Robin Howe steps down from the Board.

Commenting on the Board Changes, John Varney, Non-Executive Chairman, said:

"I am delighted that Richard Logan has agreed to join the Board of the Group. His previous roles within the industry will bring a valuable level of experience to the Board.

I would particularly like to thank Robin Howe for his considerable and invaluable contribution to the Group over the last 14 years. He has been an outstanding SID, helping shape the role of the Board in recent times and has been an engaged mentor for senior members of the Company over many years. We wish Robin every success in his future endeavors."
