We are delighted to announce the addition of Charlie Geffen to the Kentech Board bringing a wealth of legal and commercial experience. As a practising lawyer he was Senior Partner of an international legal practice, Ashurst, with over 1,700 professionals and 3,500 employees between 2009 and 2013. He then moved to another global law firm, Gibson Dunn, as Chair of its London based Corporate Legal practice up until June 2019. He now has a portfolio of external appointments.
Sarah Kent has decided to step down from the board and for Charlie to act as her alternate. She has made this decision to make sure that John Gilley has the best possible support going forward in pursuing the company’s continuing success in these extraordinary times. Sarah feels it is really important for her to step back to allow John the space to create his own identity as CEO and within the board room. The Kent family continues to be a major shareholder in the group and Sarah Kent will continue to support John and all of the people at Kentech in any capacity that she can.
So we welcome Charlie into his new role and thank Sarah for everything that she has done over the past fifteen years and her continued support as a shareholder of the Group.
