Spark renames Greenwood as independent director

Thursday 30 May 2019 | 11:21 CET | News
Following Greenwood's appointment as interim CEO of Russell McVeagh on 16 August 2018, Spark's board determined that she was no longer independent, due to the increased risk that while serving as interim CEO Ms Greenwood could be perceived to be materially influenced when making decisions as a director of Spark. Greenwood subsequently stepped down as interim CEO of Russell McVeagh in October 2018 and, having also ceased to be a partner of Russell McVeagh on 31 March this year, no longer has any professional relationship with Russell McVeagh.
