On Friday, the logistics giant, famed for its distinctive lorries, named Iain Ferguson - a former CEO at Tate & Lyle - as its new chairman with effect from October 1.
He will replace interim chairman Paul Orchard-Lisle, who will step down along with former chairman Rodney Baker Bates in due course, the firm said.
It follows the abrupt departure of previous chairman Avril Palmer-Baunack in April who lasted just ten weeks after a reported bust-up with chief executive Andrew Tinkler, chief operating officer William Stobart, son of founder Eddie and Tinkler’s brother-in-law, and finance chief Ben Whawell.
That was after the firm left the FTSE 250 following a sharp decline in its share price.
In January, Baker-Bates was ousted as chairman in a shareholder-backed move.
Today, chief executive Andrew Tinkler said Ferguson would "provide the group with experienced leadership at a pivotal point in its development".
The news came alongside a trading update in which it warned there would be some exceptional costs from the restructuring of Autologic and the board changes.
Shares dropped 5% to 110.75p.
