Dear Valued Customers and Partners,

We have an important organizational announcement to share regarding the management of the Hemingways Group which includes the Hemingways Collection hotel division, Express Travel Group, a leading Travel Management Company, and Hemingways Expeditions, our Destination Management Company.
As has been his plan for the past five years, in April, Alastair Addison our CEO, is moving back to live in Scotland and be closer to his family. As a result, Alastair will be stepping down as CEO of the Hemingways Group. He will take on a key part time executive position directing the Sales and Marketing strategy of Hemingways Collection, maintaining many key relationships with our trade partners, as well as supporting strategic board initiatives and continuing to support his fellow Directors on certain day to day business matters. Alastair will remain an executive director of the Group and will play a fundamental role in our recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic as well as our continued business growth in the hospitality and travel sector.

As a result of this change, Ross Evans, our current Group Operations Director, will take on the position of CEO of the Group from April 2021. In line with our succession plan, for the past 5 years, Alastair and Ross have worked very closely together to ensure the business continues to thrive well into the future. Ross joined the Hemingways Group in 2016 and combines industry expertise with ten years' experience in the financial industry. Dr Joseph Kithitu will remain in his position as Group Finance Director working closely with Ross, the Board and all of our staff to ensure we continue to build on the excellent business that the Hemingways Group has become.
I want to thank Alastair enormously for his valuable contribution to the Group as CEO for the past 10 years and I am excited about the future prospects for our business. The last year has presented us with incredible challenges however our industry has shown amazing resilience in very difficult circumstances.
We thank all of our partners for the support you have given us and we look forward to continuing to support our clients, in delivering a memorable travel experience and ensuring that Express Travel Group brand remains at the forefront of the travel industry in East Africa.

Yours sincerely,
RGR Evans
Group Chairman
