Francis Small, Chairman of Quixant, commented: "We are delighted to be bringing Johan onto the Board and to have attracted someone of his calibre. His tenure during several years of impressive growth at XP Power puts him in excellent stead to support Quixant's ambitious growth plans. On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Andrew for his hard work and contribution to Quixant over the last year, which have helped navigate the business through unprecedent global conditions."
