- Benchmark, an aquaculture health, nutrition and genetics business, said its founder and chief executive officer, Malcolm Pye, would be stepping down to allow the company to appoint a new chief executive to drive the next phase of its growth and development.

Malcolm Pye would formally step down on 30 November 2019 when he would become a non-executive director of benchmark, ensuring the company retains, at Board level, his extensive knowledge and experience, Benchmark said.

Peter George, Chairman of Benchmark, would step up, with immediate effect, to executive chairman and remain in this role through to the appointment of a new CEO, to ensure a smooth transition period and a successful handover of Pye's role and responsibilities.
