Appointment of Lord Nicholas Monson as Non-Executive Director
Legendary is pleased to announce the appointment of Lord Nicholas Monson as a Non-Executive Director with immediate effect. For much of his career, Nicholas has been successfully advising private and listed companies on communications and business strategy.
Lord Monson commented:
"I am honoured to join the board of a company with such promising prospects. The holdings within the company are potentially within sight of realising valuations on aggregate, substantively in excess of the cost to Legendary Investments of their original purchase price. This thereby validates the bespoke investment model developed and implemented by the two talented executive directors, Zafar Karim and Thomas Reuner."
Zafar Karim, Executive Chairman of Legendary Investments PLC, commented:
"We are delighted to have Lord Monson join the board at this key point in Legendary's evolution. The growth in assets achieved over the last several years attests to the success of the investment model. Further potential is attested to by our ability to attract an individual of Lord Monson's capability, communications and strategic experience and network."
