Evolve Education Chairman retires as Board steps up search for replacement

Alistair Ryan, the outgoing Chairman of Evolve Education, has now left the organisation having officially retired from the Group on 15 June 2019.


The move, which was first flagged in May 2019, comes in the wake of the company successfully raising $63.5 million for a range of uses including paying down debt, supporting their New Zealand turnaround plan and providing funds for their initial phase of investment in Australia.


Mr Ryan, who joined the Group as an independent director in December 2014, assumed the role of Chair on 1 June 2017 when Nora Barlow, the previous Chair, relinquished her position in the wake of her appointment as Chief Executive Officer of Estia Health Limited (Australia).


Ms Barlow continued as an independent board member and will once again reassume the Chair responsibilities until a suitable candidate has been secured to replace Mr Ryan.


Commenting on Mr Ryan’s retirement Ms Barlow noted “The Board is grateful for Alistair’s resolute commitment to address issues affecting performance, and his work towards raising new capital and development of the New Zealand turn around plan.”
