- James Fisher and Sons said Tuesday that Nick Henry had informed the company he would retire as Chief Executive Officer by the end of December next year.

The notice Henry had given ensured there would be sufficient time to allow a thorough search process to take place, both internally and externally, to allow a smooth transition of responsibilities, the company said.

Malcolm Paul, Chairman of James Fisher, commented: 'Nick's track record as Chief Executive speaks for itself. He has overseen strong organic growth, particularly in our Marine Support and Specialist Technical divisions, and successfully completed a number of niche acquisitions. Nick will continue to deliver our consistent strategy during the coming financial year as we manage the transition to a new leadership.'
