Huntsworth announced Friday the resignation of its Non-Executive Director Michael Birkin, along with a number of changes to its board.

The global public relations and healthcare communications group said Birkin will leave the company Friday to concentrate on his new commitments in Asia as Chief Marketing Officer of Acer.

Richard Sharp, Chairman of Huntsworth, said: "Michael has been a valuable member of the Board for over three years and has made a considerable contribution to the business. I would like to thank Michael for his hard work and sound advice and we wish him well in his new role with Acer."

Joe MacHale, who joined the board in July, will replace Birkin as Senior Independent Director and chair of the audit committee.

Company Secretary William James also resigned Friday and Martin Morrow will take his place.
