Directa Plus PLC (LON:DCTA), a leading producer and supplier of graphene nanoplatelets based products for use in consumer and industrial markets, has announced that Marco Ferrari, its chief financial officer, has tendered his resignation from the company in order to pursue another business opportunity.
The group said Ferrari 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, it added, Ferrari will oversee the preparation of the accounts for the year to December 31, 2020, which are expected to be substantially complete by the time of his departure and announced in April 2021.
The company said it has already begun the search for a replacement and is confident of being able to recruit a high-quality replacement, with further announcements to be made in due course.
In a statement, 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."
Ferrari 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."
