Benchmark Holdings CFO stands down after nine years

(Sharecast News) - Aquaculture health and genetics business Benchmark Holdings announced on Tuesday that chief financial officer Mark Plampin would be stepping down after nine years in the role.
During his tenure with the group, Plampin led Benchmark through its admission to AIM and the acquisitive and organic growth that followed.

Plampin notified the board of his decision to step down in order to "pursue other opportunities" but agreed to continue in the role until a successor could be appointed to ensure an orderly transition process.

Chairman Peter George said: "On behalf of the board, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mark for his considerable contribution during his time with the group and wish him every success in the future.

"We have begun the search for his successor and look forward to updating on progress and ensuring a smooth handover of duties in due course."

As of 0930 BST, Benchmark shares slipped 2.77% to 49.10p.
