Logistics company Qube Holdings has announced that one of its long-standing non-executive directors is set to retire this month.

Ross Burney will step away from the company on February 22, with Burney having been a key cog of the business since its incorporation in 2011.

Burney has served as a member of the investment advisory committee that undertook the preparatory work that eventually led to Qube’s successful corporatisation.

Qube Chairman Allan Davies says Qube’s board of directors and management thank Burney for his “significant contribution” to the establishment, strategic direction and growth of Qube over his time at the company.

“Ross’ input at both board and committee level has been highly valued and appreciated. Ross’ retirement is part of Qube’s continued focus on board succession and renewal which also saw the appointment of Jill Hoffmann to the board in December and the appointment of James Fazzino, who will join the board later this month,” Davies says.

“With these changes, I am also pleased to announce that effective today, Jill has been appointed as a member of both the Nomination and Remuneration Committee and the Audit & Risk Management Committee.”

Davies says Fazzino will also join Qube’s Audit & Risk Management Committee, with Sam Kaplan to step down from the committee and remain as deputy chairman.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Sam for his invaluable contribution to the work of the Audit & Risk Management Committee, which he chaired for many years following its inception,” Davies says.

“Under Sam’s guidance and membership, this committee has been fundamental to establishing and maintaining Qube’s high standards of corporate governance and financial reporting, as well providing critical guidance to management and the board.”
