New CEO to be Appointed at EBED

Following changes in his private circumstances Mark Humphris has decided to bring forward by some months the date he had planned to step back from his role and will be leaving EBED later this summer.
Mark remains a friend of EBED and no doubt will continue to participate and contribute to the game.
We are grateful to him for his support over the transition to the new trustee team and all that he has contributed in both of his roles with us.
The search for a replacement has begun.

Chairman EBED
