Board Changes


Northgate plc ("Northgate", the "Company" or the "Group"), announces that today Paddy Gallagher, Chief Finance Officer, has been summarily dismissed due to his conviction for the summary offence of common assault.  Whilst the conviction relates to Mr Gallagher's personal life, solely as a result of this conviction, the Board considers Mr Gallagher's position is untenable.


David Tilston has been appointed as Interim Chief Finance Officer.  He was formerly the Interim Group CFO of Consort Medical plc from December 2016 - April 2017, Group Finance Director of Innovia Group plc from March 2012 - March 2015 and is currently a non-executive director of Scientific Digital Marketing Imaging plc.
