Arqiva’s chief executive officer, John Cresswell, is due to step down from his post at the end of August. 

In a statement, the UK transmission services provider said that Cresswell has chosen to step down as CEO after four and a half successful years at the company and that his planned departure date would “ensure a smooth transition” to his as-yet-unnamed successor.

“Under his leadership Arqiva has significantly grown its profits, has a forward order book at an all-time high of £6.4bn and will this year deliver record revenues,” said an Arqiva spokesperson.

Cresswell’s replacement will be announced “in due course”.
