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.
