with both great assets and people. I have taken real pleasure over the past

three years in seeing the business develop and believe ABG will continue to

build on the strong platform we have established."

Greg Hawkins, Chief Executive Officer, added: "I have thoroughly enjoyed

working with Kevin over the past few years as we have progressed ABG. Whilst we
