John Scarisbrick is stepping down from the Board of CSR and his role as Chief Executive Officer on the 1 November 2007. He will act in an advisory capacity to CSR from that date until the 31 December 2007.
Ron Mackintosh, Chairman, said “John has made a substantial contribution to CSR, first as a non-executive director since 2004 and then as Chief Executive Officer since March 2006. Over that period, CSR has achieved impressive growth, developed its business on all fronts and clearly reinforced its position as the global leader in our sector. The Board is delighted to announce Joep as our new Chief Executive. His mix of skills and experience, including in the scaling of technology businesses and in sales and marketing, suit him ideally to the opportunities facing CSR. We are confident in the future of CSR under Joep's leadership.”
