Jeremy Matthew, the group’s current CFO will take over as CEO with immediate effect and will be supported by Paul Merritt, currently Senior VP Sales, Marketing and Products, who has been elevated to the position of COO.

Bharat Bhise representing the Seaco board, commented, “ When HNA/Bravia aqcuired Seaco in December 2011 we recognised we were also securing an outstanding management team which is why it was such an easy decision to transition leadership from within that team as a consequence of Mr Amble’s retirement.”
