Ian Gilham, Chairman of the Board of Directors, Horizon Discovery, said the company will start with the search for the new CEO who will lead the the next phase of its growth and development.
Darrin M Disley, said: “I am proud to have led the team through this successful period and feel now is the right time, after 11 years as Chief Executive Officer, to hand over the reins to pursue my other business interests. I know the Group and the current leadership team is the strongest it has ever been. I wish everyone well and look forward to watching Horizon’s future successes.”
