However, it's important to acknowledge the significant contribution that David has made to Pace over the last six years in building its operational capabilities. We wish him all the best for the future."
Separately, Tim O'Loughlin has been appointed President of Pace Americas. Tim replaces Mike Pulli in the role, following Mike's appointment as Pace CEO in December 2011.
