John Menzies, the aviation services company, which earlier this month warned that full-year profits will fall below expectations, is getting a new chairman.
Dermot Smurfit is being replaced by current non-executive Philipp Joeinig as chairman with immediate effect.
The company said the chairman joined the board in July 2016 and oversaw a number of changes including the sale of Menzies Distribution, which allowed the group to pull out of the market to distribute newspapers and magazines.
He said: "I wish the group and its 36,000 employees the very best for the future as it embarks on the next stage of its journey. I believe that this now requires an industry specialist to bring Menzies to a new level of excellence. I wish my successor, Philipp Joeinig every success in that mission."
