“The consortium’s shareholders have scheduled a general meeting for later this month to replace them and augment the board with highly reputable international business and professional figures” – the statement reads.
As noted in the statement, three new members have now been nominated to the board: R. Michael Cowgill, President of the American Chamber of Commerce in Georgia; Ted Jonas, Senior Counsel with the international law firm Dentons; and Jean-Patrick Voisin, President of Concorde Capital.
