Versarien plc (LON: VRS), the advanced materials engineering group, has today announced that Matt Walker, who has been on secondment to the Company since May 2018 from the UK Government’s Department for International Trade, has had his secondment extended for a further year to May 2020.
The DTI have agreed that given Matt’s contribution to Versarien’s overseas investment ambitions, in particular in China and South Korea, existing collaborations and overall furtherment of Versarien’s international business it is appropriate that his secondment is extended.
Neill Ricketts, CEO of Versarien, commented:
“We are delighted that the DIT have agreed to extend Matt’s secondment for a further year. Matt has already provided a significant contribution to Versarien, particularly with regard to our activities in Asia and with a number of our collaboration partners. We look forward to continuing to benefit from his skills and experience as we further process our international business.
“I would like to express my sincere thanks to the Department for International Trade and the UK Government more widely for their continued support, and in particular their faith in Versarien through continuing to second such a senior resource.”
