AMA Group appoints Carl Bizon as Chief Executive Officer

As the situation surrounding the departure of Andy Hopkins from the AMA Group continues to unfold, the board has issued the following statement.

“The board of AMA Group has appointed Carl Bizon as Chief Executive Officer having accepted the immediate resignation of Mr Andrew Hopkins. Company Chair Anthony Day said: “The board is pleased to announce the appointment of Carl. Carl is a proven senior executive with extensive leadership skills and experience to successfully lead the business to its full potential. Having been a non-executive director of AMA since February 2020, Carl knows the business well and it will allow a seamless leadership transition.”

Carl Bizon said: “I am excited to be joining the business as Chief Executive Officer. As a member of the board over the past year, I have developed a thorough understanding of the business. The business is well positioned to capitalise on growth opportunities, despite the uncertainty created by the pandemic. I look forward to working with the AMA leadership team to deliver continued growth and development of the business”.

Immediate exit of Mr Hopkins

Having resigned as Chief Executive Officer on 31 January 2021, and under the terms of Mr Hopkins’ employment contract, Mr Hopkins is required to immediately resign from the board of the Company. The board expects to receive notice of his resignation from the board forthwith. Mr Hopkins resignation follows an independent investigation into his conduct by McGrath Nicol. The Company has begun a formal process to recover a sum approximating $1million.”

As we understand the situation, Hopkins disputes some of the matters and therefore they are as yet unresolved.
