" These changes will further strengthen the Board as the business embarks on the next phase of its long-term growth. The diversification of the membership of its committees will enable the Board to continue to maintain effective oversight as the business grows. It will mean more work can be delegated to the committees, which will free up Board time to focus on strategic matters."
