Praemium Chairman Barry Lewin said, “At a time of heightened industry consolidation, when we are experiencing very strong growth across all parts of our business and we have commenced the divestment process for our UK and International business, the Board is delighted Anthony has agreed to accept the permanent appointment as CEO. He will contribute stability, leadership and his deep financial services, management experience and acumen to the wider senior management team at an important time for the Company.”
