Resignation of Chief Financial Officer

 

Directa Plus (AIM: DCTA), a leading producer and supplier of graphene nanoplatelets based products for use in consumer and industrial markets, announces that Marco Ferrari, Chief Financial Officer, has tendered his resignation from the Company in order to pursue another business opportunity.

 

Marco will step down from the Board and leave the Company at the end of March 2021. In the interim, he will continue to run, with his team, the finance function of Directa Plus to ensure an orderly handover. In particular, Marco will oversee the preparation of the accounts for the year to 31 December 2020, which are expected to be substantially complete by the time of his departure and announced in April 2021.  The Company has already begun the search for a replacement and is confident of being able to recruit a high-quality replacement. Further announcements will be made in due course.

 

Giulio Cesareo, Founder and CEO of Directa Plus, said: "Although I am very sorry to see Marco leave, I recognise that other opportunities to add experience and new challenges can be hard to resist. On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Marco for his hard work during his time with Directa Plus and wish him well for the future."

 

Marco Ferrari, CFO of Directa Plus, added: "I will miss the Directa Plus family.  I have learned a great deal at this company and my thanks are due to all of my colleagues for making such a rewarding working environment for this stage of my career."

 

This announcement has been approved by Giulio Cesareo, Chief Executive, on behalf of the Company.
