Nighthawk Bolsters its Board of Directors

Nighthawk has appointed Johan Claesson, the company's largest shareholder, as a non-executive director with effect from April 1, 2014. It has also promoted Denver-based Chief Operating Officer Chuck Wilson to the board as an executive member, also from April 1.

Meanwhile, the firm said that Executive Chairman Stephen Gutteridge will step down from his position by the end of September this year.

The board changes signal a shift in how the company will be managed from now on, according to Gutteridge.

He said in a company statement:

"Our Denver team has delivered significant success over the past two years and built a US company that has good future prospects. The current split of executive responsibility between the US and the UK, whilst appropriate for the recovery over the past two years, is not the most effective way to run the business going forward. I am delighted that Johan and Chuck have agreed to join the board at a time when key decisions will be required."
