Dr Kevin Thompson has advised Opus International Consultants Limited of his intention to retire as Chief Executive with effect from 30 September 2010.

Opus Chairman, Kerry McDonald, said that Kevin has made an outstanding contribution during his nine years as Chief Executive, including in growing the business and its profitability, its listing on the NZX and responding to the Global Financial Crisis. He said that Kevin had always put a strong focus on people which had been a key factor in the development of the business, which now offers more than 50 disciplines in New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom and Canada.

The Board was aware that Kevin has been thinking about retirement. An announcement on his successor will be made in the near future.
