As outlined in the Interim results announced in August, this structure provides a strong base for future development and growth as the Company continues to increase the size and range of its service offering. However, in order to maintain the growth of the business, which enjoyed record revenues of over $79m in the first half of the financial year, new leadership is required to build on the significant contribution which Geoff Fardell brought to the Group and to move the Company to the next stage of growth. Jamie Boyton, Executive Chairman and co-founder of Capital Drilling, will act as interim Chief Executive until a replacement for Mr Fardell has been found. An independent and international executive search firm has been appointed to assist in this process. Commenting on the management changes, Jamie Boyton stated: "The Board of Capital Drilling would like to thank Geoff for his valuable contribution to the Group - without doubt the structure of the business has been considerably strengthened, largely due to his efforts and I would like to wish him every success in his future endeavors. The Group has now entered into a new phase of its strategy, and subsequently needs a different skill set to head up its management team."
