Shareroot Ltd (ASX:SRO) has appointed Dr Julian Chick as chairman, effective May 6 2019, following the resignation of Harvey Kaplan.

Kaplan was appointed in an interim capacity until a suitable chair could be identified and has been pivotal in realigning the company and charting its path forward.

Rebuilding the foundation and recalibrating the strategic direction of the company over the past three months has required a considerable effort from the ShareRoot board, led by Kaplan and newly appointed CEO, Michelle Gallaher.
