Kordia Group CEO Scott Bartlett is taking a period of extended leave to focus on his health.
This follows a recent diagnosis of multiple tumours on the brain, treatment for which is currently underway, says Kordia, in a statement.
Kordia Group CFO Shaun Rendell has been appointed as acting CEO.
He will be supported by the Group’s senior leadership team and the Kordia Group Board.
“We all have a huge amount of love and respect for Scott,” says Rendell.
“The entire team wishes him the best of luck for his journey ahead, and we look forward to seeing him back in the office soon.
“At Kordia, we’ve always taken the view that the health and wellbeing of our people comes first, and we’re fully committed to supporting Scott during this difficult time.”
He also ensures customers “it’s very much business as usual and we remain fully focused on ensuring they continue to receive the best service, advice and support.”
