Flint Group Leadership Change

April 2024:  Following the successful completion of Flint Group’s debt restructuring last September and the establishment of a new Board of Directors, Steve Dryden has informed the Board of his intention to leave Flint Group effective later this year.

The Board will make a further announcement regarding a successor to Steve in due course. In the meantime Steve will continue to perform his duties as Chief Executive Officer executing Flint’s successful strategy closely supported by the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee.

“Leading this company through the challenges of a restructuring and change in ownership has been a privilege. I’m extremely proud of what we have accomplished together, despite the headwinds that we faced in these past years. With the restructuring process complete, a new Board appointed and at a time of strong operational performance, I believe it’s the right moment to hand over to the person who will lead the business through its next chapter,” said Steve Dryden.

Jason Clarke, Chairman of Flint Group, said, “On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Steve for his leadership and dedication to Flint Group and its stakeholders during a period of change. Steve leaves a business in excellent health, with an experienced executive team, and on a strong early trajectory in 2024 with volumes and margins ahead of both budget and prior year. The Board wishes him success in his future endeavours.”
