Paul Dollman, the former finance director at John Menzies, has joined gas meter specialist Smart Metering Systems (SMS) as its chairman.
Dollman, who was finance chief at Edinburgh-based Menzies for more than ten years before stepping down in May, replaces Kevin Lyon, who has left Glasgow-based SMS with immediate effect.
SMS chief executive Alan Foy said: “I would like to thank Kevin on behalf of the whole board for his contribution over the past two and a half years. Our Aim listing was a significant step in the development of the company and I was pleased to have a chairman of Kevin’s calibre to assist us.”
Foy said the firm was planning to appoint more non-executive directors following the appointment of Dollman, who will also chair its remuneration and nomination committees.
