I would like to thank the board of Zeon for handling the purchase of my former business with integrity and professionalism. The company is in good shape and my licensing role will be handled impeccably by general manager Esther Jolley.”

Simon Gilham, managing director, Zeon, added: “It has been a pleasure to work with Rob. Zeon has benefited from his wealth of expertise and his contribution to our efforts has been outstanding. We wish him all the best.”
