Link executive announces retirement

Link Group joint chief executive officer of corporate markets David Geddes announced his retirement from the administration giant.

An ASX statement said Geddes will leave the company effective August 2017, after working on the Link Group senior executive team for the past 11 years.

Geddes has also served as chief executive officer for Orient Capital, a wholly owned subsidiary of Link Market Services, for more than 30 years.

Current Link Group chief executive of IDDS and joint chief executive of corporate markets, Paul Gardiner, will assume overall responsibility for the corporate markets business unit, and will work with Geddes over the next six months to ensure a smooth transition.

In other company news, Janine Rolfe has been appointed as general counsel to Link Group, and as company secretary, a role which she will hold jointly with existing company secretary John Hawkins.

The Link Group board and management team thanked Geddes for his significant contribution and wished him all the best for the future.
