I worked with Malcolm as a fellow director of the statutory board. It has been great working with Malcolm. He has taken such good care of the business over the past few years, for which the company owes him a debt of thanks for that. Malcolm has taught me more about company finance than anyone. His judgement is impeccable. I would recommend him to anyone
