(Alliance News) – Household and personal care products company McBride PLC on Thursday said it has appointed Rik De Vos as its new chief executive officer.
 
De Vos will take up the role in the first quarter of 2015, McBride said. Until he takes up the role, the executive team will report to Chairman Iain Napier.
 
De Vos is currently the global general manager for the flexible foam division of Belgian company Recticel SA.
 
The incumbent chief executive, Chris Bull, is leaving the board with immediate effect, but will be available to De Vos in the handover period, McBride said. It gave no reason for Bull’s departure.
 
McBride said there has been no material change in its trading or financial prospects since its annual general meeting statement in October. It said it will provide a trading update for the six months to December 31 on January 5, 2015.
 
Shares in McBride were untraded on Thursday, having last traded at 77.00 pence.
