Spotless chairman Margaret Jackson has resigned from the Spotless board, effective immediately.

In a statement Spotless said Jackson’s retirement was due to ill health.

Jackson, who has served as chairman since March 2014, will be succeeded by Garry Hounsell.

Hounsell has been a Spotless non-executive director and chairman of the Audit, Business Risk and Compliance Committee since March 2014. He also holds current non-executive directorships with Dulux Group Limited, Treasury Wine Estates limited and Integral Diagnostics Limited. He is also  chairman of Helloworld Limited.

[quote]“It is with regret that I have advised the company of my retirement,” said Jackson.

“It has been a privilege to serve as chairman of this great company and to work closely with an outstanding board and senior management team. The company is in excellent hands going forward. I thank my fellow directors and the rest of the Spotless team for their incredible support over my time at the company.”[/quote]

Incoming chairman Hounsell has paid tribute to Jackson’s efforts: “Margaret has made an outstanding contribution to Spotless, providing great leadership through what has been an exciting and challenging three years for the company.

[quote]“On behalf of the board and management team, I extend thanks to Margaret for her leadership, commitment and support and wish her well for the future.”[/quote]
