AFG congratulates departing director John Atkins

The AFG (ASX:AFG) board today congratulated long-standing non-executive director John Atkins on his appointment to the role of Western Australia’s Agent General, based in London. Mr Atkins proposes to resign from the AFG board effective 31 August 2015 to take on his new role.

AFG Chairman Tony Gill praised Mr Atkins’ contribution to the organization. “On behalf of the AFG Board I would like to thank John for his dedicated service,” Mr Gill said.

“John has most recently been involved in the successful listing of AFG and his advice and support of senior management was instrumental in the process.  I and the rest of the Board wish John all the very best for his new role.”

Mr Atkins said he believed he left AFG in great shape.  “I am grateful to have spent the past 8 years with a wonderful organisation,” Mr Atkins said.

“AFG has been a great WA success story, and I am very proud of all that we have achieved – especially in transitioning the organisation from a private company to a listed entity”.

“I am confident that AFG is well positioned for its next phase of growth. I look forward to watching the organisation’s continued success.”
