I am pleased to welcome Chris Barnes to succeed John who has great sector experience, and his ambition and credentials will be a strong asset to Tracsis for our next phase of growth."

John McArthur commented:

"It has been my privilege and passion to lead Tracsis over the past 15 years during which time the Group has grown and matured into the successful technology and services business we see today. My transition from CEO is a natural evolution for the Group and I am pleased to be handing the baton onto Chris at a time when our business is in great shape for the future. I wish to thank the entire Tracsis team for making my journey as CEO so enjoyable and I wish you all every success for the future."

Chris Barnes, Chief Executive Officer commented:

"Firstly, I would like to thank John for his enormous contribution to the Tracsis business which he founded in 2004. I'm delighted to have been appointed as John's replacement as CEO of the Tracsis Group and I'm excited to have the opportunity to lead the next phase of both organic and acquisitive growth for this technology led business.
