Directorate Changes at Genel Energy

Genel Energy plc has revealed that Nathaniel Rothschild and Simon Lockett have resigned from the board.

Simon Lockett was chairman of the HSSE committee and a member of the audit and nomination committees. Board committee memberships are currently under review and updates will be made when appropriate, according to a Genel statement.

“Nat contributed greatly to Genel’s development as both a founder and subsequently a non-executive director,” Tony Hayward, chairman of Genel, said in a company statement.

“Despite a challenging external environment, the company has made significant progress during his involvement, and Genel has been instrumental in the development of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq’s oil industry. Simon brought with him significant experience to the board, and made a valuable contribution in his time at Genel. We wish them both the best in their future endeavours,” he added.
