"He leaves CPP in a much healthier position with good prospects for further growth. I wish him well for his future endeavours."

Two weeks ago, the business revealed it had a “good” first-half of the year despite reporting a pre-tax loss of £700,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2021, as it incurred exceptional charges from restructuring the business.

Mr Walsh said: "By the end of 2021, we should have come to a place where for the foreseeable future we are exceptionals free.

“That transformation and restructuring programme that we have seen in 2021 will be behind us in effect.”
