We will all miss him and thank him for all that he has contributed during his time as chairman. We are delighted to have secured an excellent replacement in Warren and look forward to working closely with him in the future.”
Tucker added: “I am honoured and delighted to be joining PayPoint at an exciting time in its development and look forward to working with Dominic and all our talented colleagues in the future.”
