Park has begun the process of identifying a successor, and will update the market as soon as is appropriate. As announced on the 22 December 2015, Mr. Johnson no longer holds any ordinary shares in the Company.     

Mr. Johnson established Park Group in 1966 as a Christmas hampers supplier and led the Company in its growth and evolution, through its stock market listing in 1983 and its transfer to AIM in October 2007. He has served as Non-Executive Chairman since March 2012.

Chris Houghton, Chief Executive of Park Group, said: “On behalf of the Board and everyone at Park, I would like to thank Peter for his dedication and hard work over many decades.  We have built on his entrepreneurial spirit and vision to transform the business over the years into the successful, dynamic and innovative company we are today. 

“His leadership from the very birth of our company and latterly, his experience, advice and encouragement has been invaluable to the Board and we all wish him a very happy retirement.”
