- Active Energy Group has appointed Frank Lewis as non-executive chairman with immediate effect.

Active Energy Group says Lewis has a wealth of public company experience, having served as non-executive chairman and director for a number of international publicly-quoted firms with interests across Europe, the Far East, Middle East and Africa, which has given him a sound understanding of different business cultures and working practices, as well as considerable expertise in the industrial, technology and natural resources business sectors.

In addition to his non-executive roles, he had 25 years of listed and private company boardroom-level experience, including as Finance Director, CEO and Chairman, during which time he was involved in numerous areas of business, including strategic planning, growth management, IPOs, corporate governance and regulatory compliance.

Chief executive Richard Spinks said: "My co-Directors and I welcome Frank to the Board as Non-Executive Chairman at this exciting stage in the Group's development, and we look forward to drawing on his expertise in corporate governance and regulatory compliance as we continue to expand our existing international operations and implement some of the new business ventures that we have been developing over the past two years."
