Auctus Growth Plc today announces that Charles Cannon Brookes will resign from the Board with immediate effect. It also announces the appointment with effect from today of Ross Ainger to the Company's Board.
Ross has worked alongside Charles at Arlington Group Asset Management Limited ('Arlington'), an FCA authorised and regulated firm for the past thirteen years, and was, until recently, an Executive Director of Arlington. Ross has gained extensive financial experience spanning a nineteen-year career. He previously worked at Reuters, Deutsche Bank and Merrill Lynch Investment Managers prior to joining Arlington in 2006. In addition to his role at Arlington Ross was a Non-Executive Director of an FCA regulated corporate finance firm, a Guernsey domiciled fund and currently sits on the board of a commercial property investment vehicle which forms part of an asset management group with c.

Commenting on Charles' retirement and Ross' appointment, Malcolm Burne, Chairman, said:
"On behalf of the Board and the Company, I would like to thank Charles for his hard work and commitment to the Board and the Company during his five-year tenure. Whilst none of the targets assessed to date have met the Board's investment criteria Charles has worked extensively on the analysis and corresponding negotiations of a significant number of potential transactions. The Board would like to wish him continued success in the future as he focuses on his professional commitments outside of the Company.
At the same time, I welcome and look forward to working with Ross on the Auctus Board and to gaining the benefit of his extensive experience."
