Less than a month after Peter Rogers resigned as a director of UK-based SaaS construction collaboration technology vendor Asite (see post), the company has announced (via the London Stock Exchange RNS) that Colin Goodall is stepping down as chairman. He is also “resigning from the Board of Asite with immediate effect and … Mr Walter Goldsmith, a current Non-Executive Director of the Group, has been appointed Chairman in his place”.
Goodall took over as Asite chairman on 1 January 2005 following the resignation of Sir John Egan.
According to Asite’s board profiles, Goldsmith is chairman and non-executive director of several public companies, including Fitness First plc, and is an adviser to the Rotch Property Group. Rotch and R20 Ltd are the main vehicles for Robert Tchenguiz, Asite’s biggest shareholder and another Asite non-executive director (recently in the news due to the impact of the financial market turmoil on his investment portfolio – eg: see Guardian articles here and here).
