Aberdeen non-exec steps down

Gerhard Fusenig, non-executive director at Aberdeen Asset Management, has resigned from the board of the company.

Fusenig joined the board in 2009, following Aberdeen’s acquisition of certain Credit Suisse businesses in 2008.

Roger Cornick, chairman of Aberdeen Asset Management, says: “I would like to thank Gerhard for his contribution as a director of the company. Since joining the board in October 2009 he has provided valuable insight and analysis.”

The news follows the announcement that Aberdeen is to be admitted to the FTSE 100 index, in the next quarterly reshuffle.
