NWF, fuel and feeds firm, looks for new chairman

Chesire-based NWF Group plc, the business that delivers fuel, food and agricultural feeds across the UK, announced that David Downie has informed the board he will no longer assume the role of chair of the group, as previously announced.

Downie will step down from the board effective September 29, 2022.

“The board would like to thank David for his considerable contribution over the last five years, and wishes him well, as he looks to spend more time focussing on other portfolio commitments,” said NWF.

“Philip Acton has agreed to remain as chair following the conclusion of the annual general meeting in September, and to oversee the appointment of a new non-executive chair.

“Further updates will be made as this process progresses.”
