“We would also like to acknowledge and sincerely thank Jason Court for his tenure as interim CEO of Jade and for his ongoing commitment to the business, which is reflected in the fact that he will remain in a handover CEO capacity to ensure a smooth transition for Jade’s staff and customers,” said Ms Suckling.
