CountPlus announces change of CEO and managing director

The listed advice group confirmed the change on Thursday morning (17 February).

CountPlus has announced that a new employment agreement will not be entered with current chief executive and managing director Matthew Rowe who is contracted until 24 February 2022.

Current CFO, Laurent Toussaint, has agreed to take on the interim CEO role from that date, while Mr Rowe will assist with an “orderly handover”.

Mr Toussaint has served as CountPlus’ CFO since 2018 and previously worked at professional consultancy firms including Deloitte Australia and Deloitte and Touche.

“CountPlus will shortly commence a search process to appoint a permanent CEO, including interviews with internal and external candidates,” the company said in a statement.

“This process will be led by the board with the assistance of an executive search firm.”

CountPlus said there are no other changes to the board, with independent non-executive chair Ray Kellerman to support Mr Toussaint.
