A non-executive director of independent oil and gas company African Petroleum (AP) has resigned from the company’s board of directors.

AP said on Thursday that non-executive director Anthony Wilson resigned due to health reasons with immediate effect.

The company added that it would not seek a replacement non-executive director at this stage.

Currently, the AP board of directors is comprised of non-executive chairman David King, chief executive officer and executive director Jens Pace, chief financial officer and executive director Stephen West, non-executive director Bjarne Moe, and non-executive director Timothy Turner.

Regarding the resignation, David King said: “On behalf of the board I would like to thank Anthony Wilson for his valuable contributions towards the company over the life of the company to date. We sincerely wish Anthony and his family all the best during this difficult time.”

Wilson had a long career in several senior financial positions. He initially became a partner in general practice before moving into the investment banking sector initially with Wedd Durlacher Mordaunt & Co and latterly with BZW, the investment banking division of Barclays. Wilson was a finance director for BZW Securities and BZW Asset Management over a period of ten years.

Following BZW, Wilson held various senior management roles as a director for DAKS Simpson Group and Panceltica Holdings.
